We used an established, process-based model of the dynamics of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycling between plants, soils and animals in grazed temperate pastures to clarify expectations of how some major components of intensification affect the outcomes (short-term and long-term) of alternative...

A major challenge for livestock farming systems (LFSs) is to reconcile production with the management of natural resources, especially biodiversity and ecosystem services. Based on a review of research conducted on grassland- and rangeland-based LFSs, this paper addresses this challenge by...

In this worked example of the application of generalized linear mixed models, we model the invasion probability of an invasive plant species, giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum), based on field surveys of 20 study areas of 1 km2 which were situated in areas of Germany most invaded by this...

Grasslands have to be considered not only as a means for human food production but also as a means for providing ecosystem services. Coupling of C and N cycles through soil-vegetation interactions gives grassland ecosystems a high capacity for reduction of environmental impacts. Moreover, the high...

There is growing observational evidence that the level of sunlight received at the Earth's surface is not stable over the years but undergoes substantial decadal changes. These changes, known popularly as global dimming and brightening, are related to anthropogenic air pollution, as well as changes ...

The livelihood of the Himalayan people depends on rangeland-based livestock farming in Nepal. Above 2500 m altitude, the contribution of rangelands to livestock feed supply is more than 65%. Rangeland comprises about 11.5% of the total land resources of Nepal and over 98% are located in high...

Choosing a forage crop for animal production is a broad topic with many facets. This review has chosen to concentrate on the in situ use of forage crops within temperate-pasture-based grazing systems. However, the principle of understanding the deficiencies of the pasture-based system before...
