Mediterranean inhabitants depend on natural resources for their livelihoods. Livestock production and forestry are key sources of income yet are carried out under harsh conditions such as limited land resources, marginal agricultural conditions, isolation, and scant equipment and infrastructure. Livestock is of particular importance in mountain production systems as they convert plant biomass into useful products for humans such as milk, meat and draught power. These products are key to the regions' sustainability. The main topics discussed in this book are: human geography of Mediterranean mountain territories; livestock production and natural resources; improving the efficiency of livestock systems in Mediterranean mountain areas; applications of new technologies for environmentally sound management of livestock and natural resources; and the role livestock plays in rural development and in safeguarding natural resources.
