About the book
Grasslands are of vital significance globally and cover over one-quarter of earth’s surface. They are also known by the names of prairies, pampas, steppes, savannas etc. and provide feed to animals along with serving as biodiversity reserves and catchment areas. Under changing climate scenario, they can potentially serve as carbon sinks which might alleviate the adverse effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
The book "Grasses and Grassland- New Perspectives" is expected to provide fundamental knowledge and recent advancements on underutilized grasses of economic significance as well as grasslands management for boosting their bio-productivity. Particular focus will be put on state-of-the-art strategies for grasslands restoration and conservation in the era of changing climate.
This book aims to be of great assistance for the students of undergraduate and graduate degree programs, university teachers, and researchers belonging to the disciplines of agronomy, soil science, animal nutrition, ecology, entomology and environmental science.
