A novel approach to assess biodiversity response to grazing in drylands

Vero published a paper proposing a novel methodological approach to compare community response to grazing gradients (double reciprocal analysis) in drylands. This analysis allowed for comparison of multi-taxa response under different seasons and management strategies and can be used as

Ecosystem responses to livestock grazing in drylands

Vero published a paper in Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment on the ecosystem responses to livestock grazing in drylands, showing that overall community resilience decreases under increasing grazing pressure, regardless of management strategies. The study also showed that a short-period rotational
