• Use of Reciprocal Averaging Ordination for the Study of Range Condition Gradients in Grazed Ecosystems

      Hacker, R. B. (Society for Range Management, 1983-01-01)
      The use of a multivariate ordination procedure, Reciprocal Averaging, to study species responses to grazing along range condition gradients was investigated using both artificial and field data. Results suggest that the technique should be a useful aid in the elucidation of such responses and in the study of plant-environment relationships generally in grazed ecosystems.
