Grasslands and Grassland Sciences in Northern China
National Academies, Jan 1, 1992 - Technology & Engineering - 214 pages
This volume describes one of the most extensive grassland ecosystems and the efforts of Chinese scientists to understand it.
Leading Chinese scientists attribute the decline in China's grasslands to overgrazing and excessive cultivation of marginal areas and discuss measures to limit the damage. The book gives its view on the Chinese approach to the study of grasslands and the relevance of this activity in China to global scientific concerns.
