• The Relation of Grazing to Plant Succession in the Tall Grass Prairie

      Penfound, W. T. (Society for Range Management, 1964-09-01)
      Grassland plots were subject to moderate grazing until 1949, but half of the plots were protected after that time. In general, complete protection from grazing resulted in rapid plant succession, an improvement in vegetation composition, a decrease in forage, and an increase in fresh and humic mulch.
