Multiple Effects of Introduced Mammalian Herbivores in a Temperate Forest

  title={Multiple Effects of Introduced Mammalian Herbivores in a Temperate Forest},
  author={Diego P. V{\'a}zquez},
  journal={Biological Invasions},
Introduced mammalian herbivores can significantly affect ecosystems. Here, I review evidence on effects of introduced mammalian herbivores in the temperate forest of the southern Andes. Available data suggest that introduced herbivores decrease the abundance of seedlings and saplings of dominant tree species in some forest types, which could impair forest regeneration. They also affect understory species composition. The mechanisms of the effects of introduced herbivores are complex, and… CONTINUE READING
