Perched high on the bluffs of the big river valleys in the Midwest are some of the last remnants of never-farmed prairie grasslands. These patches, edged by forest, are slowly being taken over by shrubs.
The Nutrient Network has released a new, comparative study of grasslands on six continents, to be published in an upcoming issue of Nature, that suggests it might be possible to counteract the human-made overdose of fertilizer...
Butterfly populations across the world are in the decline, and researchers say that land management could be the key to counteracting the pattern.
A new report reveals that between 1990 and 2011, Europe's grassland butterfly populations have declined dramatically, caused by intensifying agriculture and a failure to manage grassland ecosystems.
Around half of Cambodia's tropical flooded grasslands have been lost in just 10 years according to new research from the University of East Anglia.
Reduced amounts of snow cover, longer growing seasons, and other factors associated with climate change are adversely affecting a high mountain meadow in central Oregon. And experts believe that global warming is having a similar impact on such landscapes throughout the Pacific Northwest.
As drought ravages grasslands across the United States, a few American scientists are looking into how different species of grass endure these harsh conditions.
The Central and Southern mixed grasslands are a prairie ecoregion of the central United States, a portion of the North American Great Plains. This is a vast grassland area with few trees running north to south from central Nebraska through central Kansas and western Oklahoma to north central Texas, covering about 282,000 square kilometers. This is a transition zone between the Central tall grasslands and Central forest-grasslands transition ecoregions towards the east and the Western short...
Overgrazing occurs when plants are unprotected to intensive grazing for extended periods of time, or without enough recovery periods. It can be a result of either livestock in poorly managed agricultural applications, or by overpopulations of native or non-native wild animals. Overgrazing reduces the usefulness, biodiversity, and productivity of the land and is one cause of desertification and erosion. It’s also considered to be a cause of the spread of invasive species of non-native...
