Tools and methods for teaching and guiding rangeland use

Abstract : Pastoral farming uses diverse, heterogeneous, and season-specific vegetation for which conventional grassland references and methods are ill-suited. Recently, four complementary tools were developed for use with such rangeland types. Pastotheque is an ecopastoral reference guide for pastoral systems it describes available resources, including how they may change as a function of use, and discusses vegetation sensitivity to climate change. Mil'Ouv is a method for analysing feed systems at multiple scales, from farms to topo-facies. Rami Pastoral is a serious game aimed at testing and exploring grazing strategies under conditions of climate change. Stratpasto groups together standardised online surveys focused on pastoral feed systems. These four tools take interdisciplinary, collective approaches and can be used to teach and provide advice about pastoral farming issues. Used in tandem, they make it possible to document, diagnose, simulate, and compare rangeland use across multiple scales.
