Exclosures are flexible range management tools that can be used to simultaneously:
• Clarify conflicts between wild and domestic herbivores and their advocates;
• Evaluate herbivore influence on range productivity and composition;
• Monitor long-term trends and changes in range condition; and
• Identify the normal range of variation characteristic of natural plant communities.
