Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Grasslands in Europe of high nature value presents the table of contents, editorial foreword and a foreword of EU commissioner. The book shows that biodiversity rich grasslands are, perhaps rather surprisingly, still present in Europe. Their richness of flowers, birds and butterflies is a great attraction to both visitors and conservationists. Agricultural landscapes supporting such grasslands are present in several places in Europe. Farmers, as the most important group of grassland managers, are often aware of the high nature value of these grasslands. The traditional low intensity methods of grassland management for livestock forage production, remarkably, still exist today. These traditional practices are not only an element of cultural history but management by these methods can provide an income from biodiverse grasslands. Sufficient income is conveyed by a combination of monetary and nonmonetary award.
