Grasslands: Developments, opportunities, perspectives (English)

0
This book looks at significant current grassland problems and issues, and provides an insight into grassland productivity in diverse areas of the world, with their various production systems. There is a focus on recent technical advances and the prospects for further innovation, through twenty-one chapters by eminent grassland scientists, grouped into seven sections - forage germplasm; forage conservation; grass-based systems and organic production; climate change, biodiversity and biotechnology; geographical information systems; farmer and pastoralist participation; and regional developments.

The book is timely in view of the expanding human and livestock populations, especially in arid and semi-arid environments, with the consequent pressure on the world's grasslands. Researchers, lecturers and students in grassland science and its associated disciplines will find the texts and references a valuable resource in their work. Land use advisers and policy-makers should find stimulus for new ideas in the debate on the future role of grasslands in feeding the Earth's population. (Co-published with Science Publishers, U.S.A.)
