About this book

Dry grasslands support some very specialised bird species, in particular bustards, stone-curlews and sandgrouse. However, they are rapidly disappearing in Europe, causing a serious decline in these birds' populations. This seminar discussed the rate of decline / habitat loss, and recommendations for halting it, within a European context. However, the implications of this loss for other flora and fauna were also covered.
