The Rangeland Research Institute provides researchers with opportunity to conduct a wide range of short- and long-term research projects focused on providing a solid scientific foundation for the sustainable management of rangelands.

We support research that combines expertise and approaches from a variety of academic disciplines and addresses issues related to the competing demands of ecosystem conservation and resource use, including energy exploration and extraction, grazing, water management, wildlife management and biodiversity conservation, and sustainable landscape management.

Members of the research team will examine how carbon pools change with vegetation type, soil physical properties, and presence or absence of livestock. Researchers will link their field results to the provincial Grassland Vegetation Inventory (GVI), thus helping to enhance t...
