Sward-height patches under intensive and extensive grazing density in an Agrostis capillaris grassland

Abstract

Patchiness is one of the important features of grazed temperate grasslands, but little is known about the structure of sward height patches under different grazing intensities. The present study examined the effect of continuous intensive and extensive stocking of heifers on the proportions of sward-height patch categories (short ≤ 5cm, moderate 5.5–10 cm… (More)
