Grassland diversity in relation to field parcel size and management


Fragmentation in agricultural landscapes Proceedings of the third annual conference of IALE UK, held at Myerscough College, Bilsborrow, Preston, 13-14th September, 1994: 62-70
Grassland diversity in relation to field parcel size and management
The Northern Ireland Countryside Survey recorded the land cover composition of 628, 25-ha sample grid squares in 1986-91. There were 3 types of agricultural grassland land cover: Lolium perenne; mixed species; and other agricultural grasslands. They all had low species diversity. There were 5 seminatural grassland cover types: species-rich dry grasslands; species-rich wet grasslands; fen meadows; calcareous grasslands; and hill pastures.
