About this book

This text considers a range of methods used by plant and animal production scientists to study grassland vegetation and animal performance. This volume replaces a previous title, "Measurement of Grassland Vegetation and Animal Production", published in 1978. However, subjects covered in the previous book have been reconstructed completely, and many new topics have been added, to reflect recent research priorities.


Statistical aspects of vegetation sampling and animal performance; pattern analysis of vegetation data; modelling production systems; measuring botanical composition, sward structure, and population dynamics of grasslands; evaluation of forage species and cultivars; assessing rangeland condition and trends; remote sensing; measuring with parameters and mineral flows; designing animal production studies and measuring animal performance; sociological aspects.
