Pastoralism - Research, policy and practice, Vol 1 No 1

Pastoralism is a new interdisciplinary and peer-reviewed journal on extensive livestock production systems throughout the world. Pastoralists rely on rangelands and livestock for their livelihoods, but exhibit different levels of mobility and market involvement, and operate under a variety of different land tenure regimes. Pastoralism seeks to influence public policy, to improve the welfare of these people and better conserve the environments in which they live. The journal aims to keep policy makers, practitioners and pastoralists communicating with scientists and researchers and aware of each other’s concerns.
