The concept of grazing resistance, within the context of grassland and pasture management, describes the relative ability of plants to survive and grow in grazed systems (Briske, 1991). Although a reasonable understanding of the major plant attributes that confer grazing resistance has been attained, the concept is largely based on empirical evidence with a limited theoretical base (e.g. Scogings, 1995). Consequently, the potential contribution of this critical concept toward understanding… CONTINUE READING
