Web-resident database of research on biodiversity in grazed grasslands

This web-based database contains details of published research results in the area of biodiversity of grazed grasslands, with a particular emphasis on the role of grazing animal type and of management intensity. The database is implemented with an interactive keyword search facility and also with author or organisation searches. The database is publicly available and has been drawn directly to the attention of a large number of organisations with potential interest in the results, including ecological research organisations, public and private extension services, policy makers and organisations representing farmers and conservation managers, including public landowners.

The database will provide a valuable, targeted resource for these organisations to gather information in this area that goes beyond the immediate issues addressed in this project for use in the formulation of policy, management decisions and research contexting. It forms part of the project website which also includes links to the direct project results and contact details of the partners. The key innovative feature is the drawing together of these results in a dedicated user-friendly resource.
