The Grassland Ecosystem covers about 10 percent of the Earth's surface. It is found where rainfall is about cm per year not enough to support a . Due to the impacts of unwise industrial agriculture, extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency and are accelerating the process of global warming in the karst area. The dynamic change in soil organic carbon (SOC) and its driving factors in cultivated land in the last 35 years were studied by using data from the second national soil survey of China and measurements made in
Characteristics and climate. Savannas - also known as tropical grasslands - are found to the north and south of tropical rainforest biomes.

In the Eurasian steppes, unprecedented increase in grazing pressure has led to severe grassland degradation, which in turn decreases CH 4 uptake of soil [17, 19, 20]. China’s grasslands are representative of the Eurasian steppe in terms of climate, topography, soils properties, vegetation composition and land use history. Grasslands are areas where the vegetation is dominated by grasses ().However, sedge and rush can also be found along with variable proportions of legumes, like clover, and other ands occur naturally on all continents except Antarctica and are found in most ecoregions of the rmore, grasslands are one of the largest biomes on earth and dominate the landscape worldwide.

Grassland, area in which the vegetation is dominated by a nearly continuous cover of grasses. Grasslands occur in environments conducive to the growth of this plant cover but not to that of taller plants, particularly trees and shrubs.
The factors preventing establishment of such taller, woody vegetation are varied. The Steppe, belt of grassland that extends some 5, miles (8, kilometres) from Hungary in the west through Ukraine and Central Asia to Manchuria in the east. Mountain ranges interrupt the steppe, dividing it into distinct segments; but horsemen could cross such barriers easily, so that steppe.
Development of urban areas is increasingly cutting into grassland habitat. Invasive species can displace native plants and reduce the quality of a grassland. J.A. Mason, C.W.

Introduction. Grasslands are the dominant landscape in China and account for 40% of the national land area. Geographically, about 78% or some million ha of the grasslands in China occur in the northern temperate zone (), constituting an integral part of the Eurasian grassland ecosystem to the east of the northern grassland ecosystems of China play important roles in Cited by: Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies (previously titled Guns, Germs and Steel: A Short History of Everybody for the L Years) is a transdisciplinary non-fiction book by JaredGuns, Germs, and Steel won the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction and the Aventis Prize for Best Science Book.A documentary based on the book, and produced by the.
Abstract. With over 13 Mio. km², grasslands of Eurasia form one of the largest continuous terrestrial biomes. They mostly represent environments with low productivity and with a long evolutionary history of natural grazing.
Grasslands cover around 40% of the global land surface and a large fraction of their biomass is below ground .Therefore, grassland soils hold relatively large quantities of organic C and store around 28%–37% of the global soil organic C pool .Grasslands are net sinks for the atmosphere, collecting nearly PgC per year [3,4].Grasslands have an irreplaceable role, as their contribution.

In arable land the concentration of organic phosphate is in the order of 50% of total phosphate in the upper soil layer and in grassland soils the proportion of organic phosphate may be even higher (Sharpley, ).
A substantial part of organic phosphate, up to kg P/ha, may be fixed in microbial biomass (Brookes et al., ). Phosphate. This book focuses on grassland ecosystem evaluation including vegetation coverage, net primary productivity, carbon sink accounting, and grassland degradation evaluation based on mutual data resource, ecosystem model simulation, remote sensing monitoring and driving mechanism exploration.
CRP is a land conservation program administered by FSA. In exchange for a yearly rental payment, farmers enrolled in the program agree to remove environmentally sensitive land from agricultural production and plant species that will improve environmental health and quality.
Contracts for land enrolled in CRP are years in length. The Eurasian steppe, an important part of global grasslands, is the largest and relatively well preserved grassland in the world. In this study, we analyzed the spatial pattern of aboveground biomass (AGB), and correlations of AGB to its environment in the Eurasian steppe by meta-analysis.
Human expansion throughout the world caused that agriculture is a dominant form of land management globally. Human influence on the land is accelerating because of rapid population growth and increasing food requirements.
To stress the interactions between society and the environment, the driving forces (D), pressures (P), states (S), impacts (I), and response (R) (DPSIR) framework.  Between July and June we recorded many ecohydrological observations at a sparse grassland site on the southern periphery of the Eurasian cryosphere in Mongolia.
Grass growth at the study site shows significant difference of biomass between drier and moister years. Seasonal change of PAR albedo is a good indicator of temporal change of biomass. This book brings together information on the contrasting characteristics, condition, present use and problems of the world's main natural grasslands.
Since grassland is commercialized through the grazing animal, particular attention is paid to the livestock production systems associated with each main type. Grazing resources are more than simply edible herbage: many other factors have to be.
Asia is the largest of the world’s continents, covering approximately 30 percent of the Earth’s land area. It is also the world’s most populous continent, with roughly 60 percent of the total population. Asia makes up the eastern portion of the Eurasian supercontinent; Europe occupies the western border between the two continents is debated.
A biotic factor is a living organism that shapes its environment. In a freshwater ecosystem, examples might include aquatic plants, fish, amphibians, and algae. Biotic and abiotic factors work together to create a unique ecosystem.

In actual practice, grassland agriculture includes the proper use of legumes as well as grasses. Grasses and/or grass/legume mixtures are used to feed livestock, support wildlife, and to maintain land.
Five kinds of grassland are considered, namely natural temperate grasslands, semi-natural temperate meadows and pastures, tropical grasslands, arable grassland and cropland. The volume is based on data collected in more than 50 studies made during the International Biological Programme studies in 22 countries.Many factors impacted that disaster but better knowledge and management of the plant, soil, animal cycle would have been very valuable.
Today more issues loom over the grasslands. Residential encroachment, desertification, grazing/water rights, plant selection, and suitable land usage all must be considered in properly maintaining the immense.Karabi Pathak, Arun Jyoti Nath, Gudeta W.
