Biodiversity benefits of vegetation restoration undermined by livestock grazing.
Extensive areas of the Earth’s terrestrial surface have been subject to restoration, but how best to manage such restored areas has received relatively limited attention. Here we quantify the effects of livestock grazing on bird and reptile biota within 61 restoration plantings in south-eastern Australia. Using path analysis, we identified some of the mechanisms giving rise to differences in patterns of species richness and individual species occurrence between grazed and ungrazed plantings....[Show more]
