Disturbance in grasslands : causes, effects, and processes by J. van Andel( Book )

13 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of a Symposium, held in October, 1985, to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the De­ partment of Plant Ecology of the University of Groningen. The Department of Plant Ecology was founded by Professor Dingeman Bakker and has, since its incep­ tion, been involved with studies of grasslands, and especially with the effects of human interference on grassland communities. It has been especially involved in an almost unique enterprise to convert areas of grassland from intensive agricultural production to nature reserves. With over-production of most food commodities in the EEC, and increasing interest in various types of 'set aside' schemes, this initiative now seems to be remarkably prescient. The Netherlands have a long history of human manipulation of the environment. Indeed, the Dutch en­ vironment is probably more man-made than that of any other country. In view of this, and the Laborato­ ry's interest in managed grasslands, it is not surprising that 'Disturbance in Grasslands' was selected as the topic for the Laboratory's Jubilee Symposium. Although both the Symposium and the resulting vo­ lume, have a strong Dutch component, the organisers invited a number of contributors from Europe and elsewhere to provide key chapters. The result is a volume which covers many aspects of disturbance in a variety of grasslands. Disturbance is considered at both the community and the population level, and the principles and processes underlying those responses are explored
Grazing and conservation management by Michiel F WallisDeVries( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grazing animals enjoy an ambiguous reputation in the field of nature conservation. Livestock are often treated as a scourge, yet native large herbivores form the prime attraction of many a reserve. This book gives the first comprehensive overview of the use of grazing as a tool in conservation management. Considering in turn the ecological and historical background, the impact of grazing on community structure, management applications and future prospects, this book examines issues such as the role of herbivores as keystone species, the assessment of habitat quality and the function of scientific models in advancing grazing management. Large herbivores are shown to be potentially powerful allies in the management of nature reserves, particularly in the maintenance, enhancement or restoration of biodiversity. Grazing and Conservation Management will appeal to conservation biologists and rangeland managers, providing them with a clearer understanding of grazing and conservation management

Netherlands-Wetlands : Proceedings of a Symposium held in Arnhem, the Netherlands, December 1989 by E. P. H Best( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a compilation of most of the seminars presented during a symposium held in Arnhem, the Netherlands. The introduction treats not only the Netherlands as wetland in a larger landscape but also the various wetland types within the country itself. The subsequent case studies concern representative wetland types. Both introduction and case studies give an historical, hydrological, physicochemical and biotic characterization of the wetland concerned as well as a description of management measures in the past and in the present; summarize the threats to the systems; and indicate prospects for the ecosystems, given the present environmental conditions and expectations for short and long term changes. In the introduction special attention is paid to the border-crossing biotic elements, such as birds. These sections are followed by a summary of the ecology of the Netherlands wetlands and indications for future ecological research. Finally, the environmental policy and its consequences for management on a national, regional and local scale are discussed.<br/>
