Conditions of Rangelands before 1905

The abundance of a diverse assemblage of large grazing mammals at the end of the Pleistocene indicates that Sierra Nevada rangelands were highly adapted to intense grazing pressure and that animal disturbance was an integral part of this highly productive system. This evidence argues for a recognition that well-managed animal disturbance is as vital as well-managed fire to ecosystem health and sustainability.
