Ecological implications of livestock grazing



Ecological implications of livestock grazing



Ecological implications of herbivory in the west: 177-211



The ecological implications of livestock grazing are reviewed under the headings: rangeland deterioration; response of vegetation to grazing; methods of grazing optimization; livestock grazing in the West; stability and recovery of rangelands; interactions with the effects of fire, nutrient cycling, patch dynamics and formation of a cryptogamic crust; examples of exclosure studies; and the sustainability of livestock grazing.
