Feed and grazing management affect both the quantity and quality of animal manure and consequently nutrient cycling in the mixed crop-livestock systems in West Africa Sahel. Dietary measures can significantly influence the composition of manure and hence it’s agricultural value.
This map shows global historic" Anthropogenic Biomes" of the world (as mapped by Ellis et al 2000) that exists within rangelands, selected classes are: Pastoral Villages, Residential Rangelands, Populated Rangelands and Remote Rangelands.
There are many methods to estimate wild ungulate populations. One of these is represented by observations from vantage points usually employed in medium-low covered forest areas to estimate cervids. This method is subject to some limitations, such as the risk of double counting and the necessity to a high number of operators due to the small size of the observable areas.
Angola and FAO have engaged in close cooperation since the country joined the Organization in<p></p>1977.
This map shows Drylands found in Rangelands (using global aridity classes) mapped against country boundaries providing approximate areas of Drylands found in rangelands per country. Aridity zones were derived from an Aridity Index (AI) which is calculated as the ratio of precipitation to potential evapotranspiration.
This map shows terristrial protected areas found within rangelands. The information on protected areas is taken from IUCN and UNEP-WCMC World Database on Protected Areas. The mapping of the rangelands is taken from rangeland types and boundaries previously mapped by University of Idaho and the Society for Rangeland Management (SRM). Country boundaries were taken from ESRI 2016.
