    Description

    The characteristics, uses, and management of oak woodlands and savannas in California and southern Spain are compared. There are many similarities between the Spanish dehesa and the California oak woodland. Both are located in Mediterranean climate zones, and are used predominantly for livestock grazing. However the Spanish dehesa is a more diverse and long-standing system of management. Products include cork, acorn-fattened hogs, charcoal, milk, mushrooms, and lucrative hunting. Analysis of this system offers insight into the role of ecological and economic diversity in sustainable resource use for California.
