Building grassland typologies in order to evaluate their potential to provide agro-environmental services

Abstract : In order to successfully adapt livestock systems to a changing economic and environmental context, it is essential to determine the agro-ecological potential of available grassland with a view toă optimizing potential services. Building a typology of grassland in this case can be a very effective tool, as shown by this study of existing typologies. Understanding the connections between botanical diversity, environmental conditions and management strategies helps better evaluate grassland potential. Beyond providing a synthetic and uniform description, typologies determine the botanical diversity and the type of services provided by grassland. Building a typology of grassland implies i) defining a shared objective, ii) choosing a method for representing botanical diversity, iii) implementing evaluation criteria for provided services, iv) defining a key and describing types. Using typology is all the more crucial when this typology meets the specific needs of a `target community'.
