Grasslands are one of California's most important ecosystems in terms of both biodiversity and economic value. Bringing together the large amount of research conducted in recent years on California's grasslands, this comprehensive, state-of-the-art sourcebook addresses the pressing need to understand this unique habitat. Providing a summary of current grassland science and management, scholars examine the history of grasslands from the Pleistocene through European settlement; describe resources that influence grassland structure and productivity, focusing on water, nutrient dynamics, global environmental change, and soil biology; explore genetics, ecological interactions, grazing systems, and fire; and discuss grassland management, restoration, and public policy.

Keywords: grasslands; California; biodiversity; economic value; Pleistocene era; European settlement; water; nutrient dynamics; environmental change; soil biology
