Australian Rangeland Society

The Australian Rangeland Society and CSIRO Publications recently released a virtual issue of the Rangeland Journal entitled Grazing and Biodiversity – The Positive Side.

The adverse effects of poorly managed grazing on biodiversity and ecosystem function are attested by much scientific literature. This weight of evidence, leading to a generally negative view of grazing as an ecological factor, tends to overshadow the evidence for beneficial effects of properly managed grazing. This compilation of papers  presents examples from around the world of the benefits of properly managed grazing for conservation of biodiversity.

This virtual issue is available for free download for a period of three months from October 2018.
