Abstract
Spain is a country with an extremely long history of pastoralism and with a high percentage of its territory covered by pastures. Pastures provide a wide variety of ecosystem services, and therefore significantly contribute to society wellbeing. They also support the essential sector of livestock farming and play a key role in Sustainable Rural Development. For almost 60 years, the Spanish Society for the Study of Pastures has been working with the aim of promoting the knowledge and improvement of Spanish pastures. The amount of information gathered after all those years is incredibly high. However, a document summarizing basic information about the Spanish pastures is still lacking. Following the idea of FAO¿s Country Pasture Profiles, this work provides a broad overview of relevant information about the Spanish pastures and the livestock and wild ungulate rearing systems they support
