'The Dehesa'. A managed woodland ecosystem of land use in south west Spain



'The Dehesa'. A managed woodland ecosystem of land use in south west Spain



Integrating agriculture and forestry Proceedings of a workshop held at Bunbury Western Australia, September 26-30-1977: (received 1981); 167-169



The tree species in the system, Quercus ilex and Q. suber are managed for acorns, wood and cork. The foliage also provides fodder in periods of drought. Cork is harvested on a 10 yr cycle. Traditional livestock production used to be pigs grazed on the herbaceous component of the system and fattened on acorns; sheep, goats and cattle have become increasingly important since 1960.
