Key Issues in Grassland Studies The Grassland Review Panel appointed by the National Academy of Sciences to review this study concluded that the best way to understand the current state of grassland science in China is to let Chinese scientists speak for themselves—through their published research, their work in situ, and their descriptions. Savanna and grassland biomes cover more of the earth's surface than any other biome type, and yet they are still largely understudied. In recent decades, global savanna and grassland ecosystems have become more prominent in the literature focused on global change dynamics.

The grassland ecosystem in the Northern-Tibet Plateau (NTP) of China is verysensitive to weather and climate conditions of the region. In this study, we investigate thespatial and temporal variations of the grassland ecosystem in the NTP using theNOAA/AVHRR ten-day maximum NDVI composite data of Evaluation of Grassland Dynamics Cited by: Not Available adshelp[at]pacificwomensnetwork.com The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86AAuthor: U.

This book summarizes the wealth of new information on tallgrass prairie ecology gleaned from over fifteen years of intensive study of the Konza Prairie Research Natural Area in the Flint Hills of northeastern Kansas. Because the Flint Hills' steep topography and shallow soils made the region unsuitable for plowing, the area contains the largest tracts of native tallgrass prairie anywhere.

Grassland Dynamics Long-Term Ecological Research in Tallgrass Prairie Edited by Alan K. Knapp, John M. Briggs, David C. Hartnett, and Scott L. Collins. This theme represents a developing paradigm shift in ecology This book is a successful synthesis of the research at Konza [Prairie Natural Research Area in Kansas], linking population, community and ecosystem levels and showing the complexity of ecosystem dynamics.

This book is, almost uniquely, a complete account of one such model, the Hurley Pasture Model, a dynamic, deterministic, mechanistic simulation model for grassland, which has been developed by the author over some 20 years, in collaboration with scientists at several pacificwomensnetwork.com by: I highly recommend 'Grassland Dynamics' because of its breadth and attention to ecological theory in a management context."--Plant Science Bulletin "This Grassland Dynamics book is the first of a planned series on Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) The nucleus of the Konza prairie was hectares purchased by The Nature Conservancy in Author: Alan K.
