Effects of clearcutting on forage production, quality and decomposition in the caatinga woodland of northeast Brazil: implications of goat and sheep nutrition



Effects of clearcutting on forage production, quality and decomposition in the caatinga woodland of northeast Brazil: implications of goat and sheep nutrition



Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 46(8): 2159B



The 1st-year effects of clearing caatinga woodland on dry season forage for goats and sheep were investigated. Tree removal resulted in a 6-fold increase in herbaceous vegetation production, but 88% of this increased yield was in the form of stems from herbaceous vegetation. 72% of these stems were unpalatable to goats and sheep. Leaf litter from trees was an important component of the diet of goats and sheep during the dry season and clear felling reduced production of this forage 3-fold.
