Animal Foraging Behavior and Distribution

Animal foraging behavior and distribution problems are a major source of controversy on public and private rangelands throughout the western United States. Research and extension in this area has been to be part of multi-state, interdisciplinary teams in Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico.  Research and extension projects are designed to elucidate the underlying causes of animal distribution patterns (i.e., learning and genetics) and to explore how livestock can be used in targeted grazing projects to manage invasive plant problems and provide ecosystem services.
