About this book

One of the main problems and aims of nature conservation in Europe is to protect semi-open landscapes. In several countries the establishment of larger "pasture landscapes" with a mixed character of open grassland combined with shrubs and forests has been recognized as one solution to this problem. The book gives an overview of the European projects concerning this topic - nature conservation policy and strategies, scientific results and practical experiences creating large-scale grazing systems.
