Abstract

Temperate grasslands occupy 15 million km2 of the earth’s terrestrial biomes (Henwood, 1998). They are arguably the most altered by historic and current management in most countries where they occur, mainly because they are located on some of the world’s most fertile soils. Statistics show that globally, about 41% of temperate grasslands have been converted to intensive agriculture, 6% to urbanisation and 7.5% to other uses such as commercial forestry (Shinoda et al., 2011).
