Woodland pastures, or wood pastures, are a common landscape feature in Europe. These pastures date to medieval times or earlier, and they may have been created by natural forces rather than by farmers. This chapter compares the grazing animals of Europe and North America and the modern woodland pastures of Europe with those of the Bluegrass and Nashville Basin. The chapter makes clear that woodland pastures are distinct from savannas, a term that should not be applied to our woodlands. Knowledge about the management of wood pastures in Europe can be applied to conservation of woodland pastures in the Bluegrass and Nashville Basin.
