Review:

"The well-indexed book...is an important source of information and references for a diverse range of readers, serving us both a textbook and a reference manual. As such it will appeal to lecturers and advanced students; also advisers, consultants and innovative rangeland managers will benefit from dipping into the text. Researchers will find the book a valuable resource for the cited references..." - EAAP News
