This "forum' of papers consists of an invited paper on the application of herbivore optimization theory to rangelands of the western US, by E.L. Painter & A.J. Belsky (see 93L/07143), followed by nine brief responses representing a diversity of views on the problem. These discuss the following issues: herbivory and its consequences in terms of non-linear or biphasic growth in plants; ecological science in grazing management; grazing and plant performance; application to semi-arid rangelands of the western USA evidence from theory and agricultural practice; compensating growth of grazed plants; and evidence from native herbivory on western rangelands. -J.W.Cooper
