Simmondsia chinensis is a major evergreen browse species for livestock and wildlife throughout its range from central Arizona to NW Mexico and Baja California. Utilization can be estimated accurately from twig diameter measurements. An alternative to basing management of jojoba on time-consuming utilization measurements and arbitrary utilization limits is to monitor size of marked shrubs and manage for stable or gradually increasing shrub size. -from Author
