Experimental reduction of native vertebrate grazing and addition of logs benefit beetle diversity at multiple scales

Barton, Philip; Manning, Adrian; Gibb, Heloise; Wood, Jeffrey; Lindenmayer, David; Cunningham, Saul

Description

High densities of vertebrate herbivores can be a significant barrier to ecological restoration in many parts of the world because of their impact on vegetation biomass. A common method for managing vertebrate herbivores is the use of exclosure fences, but very few studies have examined how small-scale structural refugia (e.g. logs) can mitigate grazing impacts. We examined how beetles responded to experimentally manipulated kangaroo Macropus giganteus grazing levels using both exclosure fences...[Show more]
