NOVA Press book on Rangelands by Prof. Squires entiteled: Rangeland Ecology, Management and Conservation Benefits

Written by seventeen experts in the field of rangeland management, this compilation of essays brings to

light the latent issues concerning this subject to readers all over the globe. Though technical approaches can

address some issues, social processes ultimately prevent the balancing of these matters. Socio-economic

and political institutions are often a stumbling block for improving rangeland management. Human

intervention (such as burning and grazing) have been used as rehabilitation efforts to address reverse land

degradation problems. It is also hoped that these methods will bring about ecological restoration for more

than 30 percent of the world’s land mass and provide living conditions for 1 billion people across every

inhabited continent. Multiple-use has become an important factor in the last few decades, especially when

discussing global climate change. The extensive bibliography we provide will give researchers, members of

academia and policy makers contemplative subject matter; they may access multi-lingual literature that

give insight into the issues concerning rangeland situations.
