Abstract

The objective is to analyze a mechanism for controlling wild horse and livestock densities on public rangeland. The mechanism incorporates key ecological and economic parameters and is designed to be consistent with public interests in: (a) the multipleuse and sustained-yield management of rangeland vegetation, (b) the protection of wild horses, and (c) the prevention of economic harm to the western livestock industry.
