AbstractSoil Quality Information Sheets for rangelands describe soil properties that change in response to management and vegetation change. The sheets provide information related to a number of indicators used in rangeland health assessments. They support rangeland inventories and monitoring and provide possible management strategies for planning purposes. The introduction defines rangeland, rangeland health, soil, soil quality and explains how rangeland health and soil quality are interdependent.
