Veld Management in South Africa brings together research results on production and management of several ecological regions in southern Africa with special emphasis on the grassveld, savannah and karoo. It treats subjects like interactions between grass and trees, and between game, livestock and vegetation. It also describes foliage and various aspects of management practices like burning, fallow, erosion control, fodder production and different ways of grazing. The book not only deals with the lush and leafy aspects of the landscape, but also pays attention to the animal side of the agricultural story. One chapter is dedicated to the nutritional value of the different forage compositions and to nutrient supplementation for livestock. It is a bulky book, which will have an audience beyond the borders of South Africa in the grassland and savannah areas throughout southern and central Africa. Aimed at students of natural ecosystem management, it is also useful for livestock producers and game ranchers who rely on the veld to feed their animals. Veld Management in South Africa. N Tainton.
