This chapter focuses on range management plans. It begins by discussing a range management built on the notion of community succession and climax as laid out by Frederic Clements. It then describes the analysis of brush encroachment. Reasons for brush encroachment vary, but cessation of fire tops most lists. On many of the more arid ranges, grazing and the fire reduction that results from grazing stand as the prime collaborators in brush encroachment.
