- ... Grasslands are the largest renewable source of terrestrial chlorophytes. Furthermore, grasslands can be both fiber sources and the primary metabolizable energy source for ruminants. Therefore, rapid, accurate, and large-scale monitoring of grassland ecosystems is important to provide spatial information on forage quality control and rangeland management. In this experiment, 100 grassland sites wer ...

- ... This paper examines the effects of a single surface application of biosolids (at 20 dry Mg ha−1) on plant species composition, forage quality and quantity, and C stocks after 14 yr of rest in rangelands of the Central Interior of British Columbia. More than two times the aboveground biomass of grasses and the percent cover of plant litter were found in the biosolids treatment relative to the contr ...
