      "Grazing Ecology and Forest History is an important and fascinating book and it has been published not a moment too soon, for the last vestiges of natural" Europe are currently slipping away unrecognized. Technical in nature, it is likely to be read by relatively few, yet so explosive are its implications that it may well set off a revolution 5/5(1). This book, which an updated and expanded version of the author's thesis (presented to the Wageningen University, Netherlands), challenges the traditional view, using examples from history, pollen analyses and studies on the ecology of tree and shrub species such as oak and hazel.

Bioscience, 48(7), Summary: This paper summarizes the relationship between grassland vegetation and grazing animals. The authors conclude that ungulates are an important component of energy and nutrient flows in grazing ecosystems. This chapter explores whether species in the grazing and browsing guilds respond differently to ecosystem changes induced by elephant. The target area is Cited by: 1.

      Challenges the view that the lowlands of Central and Western Europe would revert to their prehistoric state of closed forest systems if free from human intervention. This text uses examples from pollen analyses and studies on tree species, and tests hypothesis of herbivore governance of vegetation.

The Ecology of Browsing and Grazing is a many-layered textbook and a good example of a well-executed interdisciplinary approach, imperative to combat the threats of climate change.

It can be highly recommended for students, all kinds of ecologists and members of administrative bodies in game parks, conservation areas and livestock production.

Extensive grazing and browsing by domestic and wild herbivores shape the vegetation composition, structure and dynamics of many terrestrial ecosystems. This volume investigates how large herbivores not only influence the structure and distribution of the vegetation, but also affect nutrient flows and the responses of associated fauna.

As a follow-up work to The Ecology of Browsing and Grazing, published inthis new volume presents cutting-edge research on the behaviour, distribution, movement, and direct and indirect impacts of domestic and wild herbivores on terrestrial ecosystems.

The respective chapters highlight strategic and applied research on cross-cutting. Extensive grazing and browsing by domestic and wild herbivores shape the vegetation composition, structure and dynamics of many terrestrial ecosystems.

Browsing is a type of herbivory in which a herbivore (or, more narrowly defined, a folivore) feeds on leaves, soft shoots, or fruits of high-growing, generally woody plants such as shrubs.

This is contrasted with grazing, usually associated with animals feeding on grass or other low vegetation. Alternatively, grazers are animals eating mainly grass, and browsers are animals eating mainly non. : The Ecology of Browsing and Grazing (Ecological Studies) (): Iain J. Gordon, Herbert H.T.

Grazing is a method of feeding in which a herbivore feeds on low-growing plants such as grasses or other multicellular organisms, such as species of animals can be said to be grazers, from large animals such as hippopotamuses to small aquatic snails. Grazing behaviour is a type of feeding strategy within the ecology of a species.

Specific grazing strategies include graminivory.

Grazing Ecology At the heart of the Knepp rewilding experiment is the influence of Dutch ecologist Dr Frans Vera, whose ground-breaking book Grazing Ecology and Forest History was translated into English in Vera identifies grazing animals as a fundamental and necessary force of natural disturbance.Vera is a masterpiece outlining the link of grazing ecology and ecosystems development in history, which is crucial to understand (potential) ecosystem services of grazing and grazed grasslands.
