    The Land Matrix is an independent land monitoring initiative that promotes transparency and accountability around large-scale land acquisitions (LSLAs) in low- and middle-income countries across the world. By capturing data on its website, the initiative aims to stimulate debate on the trends and impacts of LSLAs, facilitate wide participation in collecting and sharing data about these deals, and contribute to the growing movement towards open data.

    In dairy goat breeds, kids are a subproduct, hence they were weaned as soon as possible. The aim of the present work was to study the influence of lactation system on carcass quality of the two main dairy Spanish goat breeds. Present work is part of a large Project whose objective is the characterisation of the carcass and meat from 7 Spanish goat breeds. Thirty kids, 15 per breed, were slaughtered at 4,5 kg, including head and offal. Half of them were fed with natural milk, the other half with artificial milk.

    En el presente trabajo se analiza cómo afecta la composición y estructura del bosque a la riqueza de aves forestales, a escala de 1x1 km, en Cataluña. Se muestra que la riqueza de aves se ve favorecida por la cabida forestal, siempre que se evite la dominancia de masas excesivamente cerradas (FCC [Fracción de Cabida Cubierta] 70%); por la presencia de las clases naturales de edad más avanzadas (latizales y fustales); y por la diversidad de especies arbóreas y la mezcla de frondosas y coníferas.

    The aim of this study was to determine some aspects of the distribution and habitat availability for the subspecies Tapirus terrestris colombianus in the low lands of the northern Central Mountain Chain in Colombia, which is known as the Antioquian Northeast. The results confirm the presence of this subspecies in 20 new recording localities. The habitat availability was estimated by locating the records on images of vegetation covertures, being primary forest the predominant vegetation followed by bushland.

    8 flocks of Ojinegra ewes (n=5634) were studied during a productive cycle (2007-2008) in Teruel (Spain), a low-mountain dry and harsh area. Ojinegra ewes belong to a local breed, of small-medium size, reared under a semi-extensive system of management. Throughout three seasons (autumn, winter and spring) weight and BCS of 5634 ewes at lambing and weaning were recorded and 5786 lambs were weighed fortnightly form birth to weaning. Season had a significant (p>0.01) effect on weight and BCS of ewes and on lambs average daily gain.

    At present the Race Burguete is regarded as Breed in danger of extinction. The products marketed can be classified in Lechal (the colt once weaned enters the fattener) and Quinceno (foals that once weaned remain several months at grazing and around 15 months of age are fattening). The aim of this work is to characterize both systems of production and to obtain data on the behaviour of the race in order to advise farmers belonging to the association. A total of 22 Burguete colts, 12 lechales and 10 quincenos, were slaughtered. Both cases included males and females.

    MESMIS methodology (Ridaura et al., 2002) has been tested to assess sustainability of two different commercial flocks within the breeding scheme of the Latxa sheep in the Basque Country. The evaluation is based on technical, economical, environmental and social indicators derived from a SWOT analysis of the system. The assessment has been made by the comparison of two commercial flocks managed under different environmental conditions by means of specific nutrition and reproduction practices.

    A survey that gathered information about farm structure, grazing system, feeding and reproductive management was conducted in 181 farms. Parda de Montaña is the main breed regarding cows (92.4%), heifers (95,3%) and calves (84,1%). Bulls belong to Parda de Montaña (65%) breed but also Limusine, Charolaise and Blonde d'Aquitaine. Farms had an average size of 53.6 cows. Feeding depends largely on grazing in different forage resources, from June to October in high mountain ranges, in spring and autumn in natural meadows and forage crops.

    Surveys were conducted to 141 farmers registered in the FERPAM at Asturias (A), Cantabria (C) and Castilla and Leon (CL) regions, with the aim to know animal production system characteristics. Racial diversity was high (57.4% of the cows are "Parda de Montaña" (PM) and the 25.2% are cross with other breeds) and only 24.1% of farms have PM pure-breed animals. The average herd size was 32.1 cows in A, 35.3 in C and 64.6 in CL. The 95% of farms are located in mountain areas. The animals are kept indoors 3.7 months/year, as average. The average age of calves weaning was 5.8 months.
