The African Journal of Range & Forage Science (previously known as Proceedings of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa and Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa) is the leading rangeland and pastoral journal in Africa, and serves as an important reference for anyone interested in the management and sustainable utilisation of natural and agricultural resources. The journal is dedicated to promoting the understanding of processes that affect forage production of rangelands and pastures in Africa. Contributions reporting on research not done in Africa, but that are applicable in Africa, are welcome. Peer-reviewed research papers and research notes deal primarily with aspects of rangeland and pasture ecology and management, including the ecophysiology and biogeochemistry of rangelands and pastures, terrestrial plant-herbivore interactions (both domestic and wild), rangeland assessment and monitoring, rangeland and pasture management, rangeland rehabilitation, agroforestry/silvopastoral systems, mixed rangeland–cropping systems and the human aspects of rangelands. The journal publishes relevant book reviews and invited perspectives that contribute to the development of range and forage science in Africa. Letters to the editor that debate issues raised in the journal are acceptable. Publication of the journal is supported by the Grassland Society of Southern Africa.
