Modelling the effects of landscape pattern and grazing regimes on the persistence of plant species with high conservation value in grasslands in south eastern Sweden

Cousins, S; Lavorel, Sandra; Davies, Ian

Description

Semi-natural grasslands in Sweden are threatened by land-use change and lack of management with attendant risk to their biodiversity. We present a model to explore the effects of grazing frequency and intensity on plant species persistence, and the relative effects of grassland size and pattern. We used a landscape modelling platform, LAMOS (LAndscape MOdelling Shell), to design a landscape model of vegetation dynamics incorporating the effects of local succession, dispersal and grazing...[Show more]
