Grasslands are one of the most extensive vegetation formations worldwide, occurring in any biome from the Arctic to the tropics, from the sea coasts to the alpine zones, and both naturally and anthropogenically.
This book explores the creation and use of grasslands by humans from the earliest time to the present, and examines the impact of recent human interventions and global warming on their productivity, diversity, and survival. The challenges of conserving biodiversity, maintaining livelihoods of land users while protecting the land, and ensuring sustainable use are highlighted.
