Summary:
"Grasslands constitute around 13 percent of California's land area and are one of the state's most important ecosystems in terms of both biodiversity and economic value. Though they have long been manipulated, converted to other uses, or degraded, grasslands still support a large number of the state's threatened and endangered animals and plants.

   schema:reviewBody ""Grasslands constitute around 13 percent of California's land area and are one of the state's most important ecosystems in terms of both biodiversity and economic value. Though they have long been manipulated, converted to other uses, or degraded, grasslands still support a large number of the state's threatened and endangered animals and plants. Bringing together the large amount of research conducted in recent years on California's grasslands, this comprehensive, state-of-the-art sourcebook addresses the pressing need to understand this unique habitat. Providing a summary of current grassland science and management, leading scholars examine the history of grasslands from the Pleistocene through European settlement; describe resources that influence grassland structure and productivity focusing on water, nutrient dynamics, global environmental change, and soil biology; explore genetics, ecological interactions, grazing systems, and fire; and end with several chapters relating to grassland management, restoration, and public policy."--Jacket." ;
