The challenges facing grassland agronomists are becoming increasingly complex, with environmental and ethical issues assuming a greater significance alongside more conventional technical aspects. This new expanded edition, with an increased emphasis on systems thinking, has been revised to reflect current concerns, knowledge and practice. As such it addresses the need for a different approach to grassland agronomy, providing novel and provocative material to instruct, stimulate and enthuse the reader.

'This view of grassland management as applied ecology is the singular unique strength of the book.' Agriculture, Ecosystem and Environment 'A successful synthesis of science and systems thinking has been achieved in a very compact form.' Agricultural Systems 'The use of across-the-world examples enhances the applicability of the principles described.' Journal of Agriculture and Animal Sciences 'The book can be well recommended to students, teachers and practitioners of agriculture as a general overview of grassland systems as well as looking at those in a new and different light.' Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science
