Most applied ecology done on rangelands has concentrated on narrow aspects of herbivore ecology, forage availability, or on the effects of livestock management on game animals such as mule d e e r or pronghorn. Rangelands as dynamic biological communities, ecosystems, and landscapes have b e e n virtually ignored. As part of an effort to correct this imbalance, this issue of Conservation Biology features several articles related to rangeland conservation. We encourage more. In one of the first syntheses of literature on the effects of livestock management, Thomas Fleischner shows that "native ecosystems pay a steep price for the presence of livestock," including changes in species composition, disruption of ecosystem functioning, and alteration of ecosystem structure. He rightly advises conservation biologists to pay m o r e attention to the most pervasive land use in western North America.
