Large herbivores and their grazing impact is an important subject in ecology. It is well known that grazing shapes the structure, diversity and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems, but how the level of density dependence on the herbivore might change due to the interaction between herbivore and habitat is less studied. In this thesis, I studied feedback processes in an alpine environment in Southern Norway. In a large scale, long term experimental setting, sheep have been kept at high and low… CONTINUE READING
