Management of biodiversity in a cattle-rearing area: the permanent pastures of the Pays d'Auge, France

, : Management of biodiversity in a cattle-rearing area: the permanent pastures of the Pays d'Auge, France. Acta Botanica Gallica 143(4/5): 367-381

Grasslands of the Pays d'Auge were studied from the phyto-ecological viewpoint on the basis of 233 quadrats and by agro-ecological analysis to clarify the effects of farming practices on species richness in different habitats on the basis of surveys at 99 sites selected on 150 farms in the area. Field experiments begun in 1989 also studied the effects of extensification and abandonment over 3, 6 or 9 years on floristic diversity. Finally, the area was studied by remote sensing in 1990.
