Publicaciones de investigación

Una parte de los miembros de la Plataforma se dedican a la investigación y la docencia, y dedican tiempo y esfuerzo tanto a demostrar científicamente los beneficios socioambientales y servicios ecosistémicos que nos prestan la ganadería extensiva y el pastoreo como a estudiar los principales problemas que esta actividad atraviesa y a proponer y probar posibles soluciones.

En este apartado de la web planteamos una pequeña recopilación de estudios científicos relevantes de los últimos años sobre ganadería extensiva y otras materias relacionadas. Estos artículos contribuyen a proporcionar una base sólida a los contenidos que trasladamos a nuestros materiales divulgativos y publicaciones técnicas.

Se trata, por supuesto, de una sección abierta y destinada a mejorar colaborativamente; si conoces materiales relevantes y actualizados, puedes enviarnos la referencia a secretaria@ganaderiaextensiva.org
