An international terminology for grazing lands and grazing animals
V.G. Allen, C. Batello, E.J. Berretta et al.

Almost 20 years ago, the first version of ‘Terminology for Grazing Lands and Grazing Animals’ was published, with the objective of ‘developing a consensus of clear definitions of terms used in the grazing of animals.’ With the continuing support of both the International Grassland Congress series and the International Rangeland Congress series, it was always the intent to expand this to a more comprehensive and truly international version. It is a pleasure to see this intent realized in Grass and Forage Science.

Authors submitting to the journal are strongly urged to regard this paper as their guide to the correct use of terminology in grazing studies.
