Estimation of pasture area utilization by ruminants in a Sudanese-type agropastorale zone (Moyenne-Casamance, Senegal)

The amount of available forge in a Sudanese-type agropastoral zone (Moyenne-Casamance, Senegal) was quantified, taking into account seasonal management of livestock and livestock movements (starting points and movement during the day).
