From plant neighbourhood to landscape scales: how grazing modifies native and exotic plant species richness in grassland

Dorrough, Josh; Ash, Julian; McIntyre, Sue; Bruce, Sarah


The interactive effect of grazing and soil resources on plant species richness and coexistence has been predicted to vary across spatial scales. When resources are not limiting, grazing should reduce competitive effects and increase colonisation and richness at fine scales. However, at broad scales richness is predicted to decline due to loss of grazing intolerant species. We examined these hypotheses in grasslands of southern Australia that varied in resources and ungulate grazing intensity...[Show more]
