Species composition determines forage quality and medicinal value of high diversity grasslands in lowland England

Abstract:

Current intensified livestock production threatens global biodiversity and food security. Increasing the use of semi-natural, species-rich grasslands for grazing and hay-making could serve as a way to bridge biodiversity conservation and livestock production but we know little about the nutritional composition of native grasslands. To determine the effect of grassland biodiversity on forage quality and the potential benefits and limitations of using conservation grasslands for agriculture, I ...
