In 1982, the New Mexico State University College Ranch became the site of a Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project, funded by the National Science Foundation. The interdisciplinary nature of the project and the potential for extensive cooperation with non-resident investigators illuminated a need for a comprehensive indexing of published research conducted at the College Ranch and the adjoining USDA Jornada Experimental Range. The resulting synthesis features a brief narrative history and outline of research, providing information for both technical and non- technical readers, and a bibliography and associated keyword-citation index designed as references in research pursuits.
