Removal of livestock alters native plant and invasive mammal communities in a dry grassland–shrubland ecosystem

Abstract

The impacts of domesticated herbivores on ecosystems that did not evolve with mammalian grazing can profoundly influence community composition and trophic interactions. Also, such impacts can occur over long time frames by altering successional vegetation trajectories. Removal of domesticated herbivores to protect native biota can therefore lead to… (More)
