Grasslands have been modified to a large extent by the activities of man and his domesticated animals and these stresses are evaluated in terms of ecosystem structure and the activities of its organisms. The book begins with an overview of characteristics applicable to natural grasslands in general: climate, soils, water flow, productivity, micro-organisms, decomposition and nutrient cycling. Because of its length, it is published in two parts. The first includes these eight synthesis chapters and eleven regional chapters of the grasslands of the Western Hemisphere. The Eastern Hemisphere and resume compose Volume 8B. Natural Grasslands will be particularly useful for conservationists, land managers of and terrestrial ecologists in general, and those of subhumid regions in particular. It is very well illustrated and referenced and contains much information in tabular form.
