About this book These changes includeshift inthesize of regional livestock populations and in the types of management and feeding systems under which ruminant livestock are held, and increased demand of a wider range of quality attributes from animal agriculture, not just of the products themselves but also of the methods used in their production.

Arable land can be treated as a production resource, with a natural resource component and an anthropogenic capital component. It is a stock, giving a renewable flow. The arable land resource has a quantitative dimension (hectares) and a qualitative one, which may be described by innumerable edaphic, topographic and climatic site parameters.

This was an important outcome from the Rio Environment Summit of and in effect it set out how ecology should be applied and integrated with agricultural production. The strategy emphasised the significance for eco-agricultural systems in relation to the fact that almost 77% of the UK land surface is in farming use.

Detecting patterns of species co-occurrence is among the main tasks of plant community ecology. Arable plant communities are important elements of agroecosystems, because they support plant and animal biodiversity and provide ecosystem services.

These plant communities are shaped by both agricultural and environmental drivers. The pressure of intensive agriculture worldwide has caused the.

A broad-ranging, often surprising study of the economics and political ecology of coffee. Drawing alongside such studies as Stanley Mintz’s Sweetness and Power and Tom Standage’s A History of the World in Six Glasses, Sedgewick, a professor of history and American studies, debuts with an examination of the intersection of people from different parts of the world in forging an extractive.

a net reduction in arable farmland of km 2, with Scotland accounting for almost all this net loss. East Anglia also lost significant amounts of arable land, but there were increases elsewhere in England; 2,km 2 of grassland (about the size of Dorset) and 1, km 2 of arable farmland (almost the size of Bedfordshire) were converted to.

fertile land, South Africa falls short of other countries, such as In­ dia, where arable land covers 53% of the country. Most of South Africa’s land surface (69%) is suitable for grazing, and livestock farming is by far the largest agricultural sector in the country.

Herein he makes an entirely plausible case, although he may well be wrong in the details. And of that, a remarkably large proportion are already taken by humanity for human needs. Agriculture, meaning, both farmland, arable land, used to grow crops, and meadows and pasturelands, grasslands, used to feed animals, constitute together around 50 million square kilometers or roughly 40%, a little under 40% of the world's total land area.
