Showing Rating details. Sort order. Dec 31, Stan Smith rated it it was amazing. Although this book is written on an academic level, suitable for use as a textbook for grassland ecology courses, I did not use it as a textbook. Instead, I am simply fascinated by grasslands, and I think anyone who has an interest in grasslands would benefit from reading it. I grew up in the Midwest United States Kansas and have a deep appreciation for the beauty of prairies.

It has always amazed me that so many people are more concerned with the destruction of forest biomes, particularly rainforests, when it is actually grasslands that have and continue to be destroyed for human uses at a much higher rate. This is lower than any other biome, including rainforests. The book provides a comprehensive look at every aspect of grasslands, including their distribution, evolution, diversity, management, and much more.
This is an academic book, packed with data tables, graphs, and citations, making it very suitable as a textbook. But the content is accessible to anyone who would like to learn more about grasslands.
Each chapter starts with an interesting quote and ends with a concise summary of the content. If you are like me, having a more general less academic interest in the content, you may have a tendency to skim over the abundant charts and data tables, but the text is very readable, and the chapter topics are well organized, gradually building upon your growing foundation of understanding.
