  • TALES OF ALES #6 is a story about 42 years of continued, demonstrable academic excellence in undergraduate teaching and learning in range management at the University of Alberta. It features the Faculty of ALES undergraduate ‘Range Teams’ and their instructors, the ‘winningest’ teams in N. America from 1981 – 2022 in the ‘Plant Identification’ and ‘Range Management Knowledge’ competitions of the North American Society of Range Management (SRM), competing against up to 22 University teams from the best Range Management Departments in Canada, Mexico and the USA. It describes the beginnings of the ‘Range Teams’ in the early 1980’s, initiated by and because of the visionary academic and instructional impact of Professor Art Bailey, who also started the University of Alberta range management program. Lisa Ratt is the 3rd Coach of the range team, continuing that role in 2023. The story documents the team members and their many podium successes in the SRM competitions. The names and photographs of all competitors are included in this 42 year long success story. Last author Briggs assembled the story and provides commentary about the stellar academic achievements of these students, and the recognition which they have brought to the Faculty of ALES and to the University of Alberta over very many years
