Ecosystem responses to livestock grazing in drylands

chillo_et_al_2014Vero 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 management can help reduce ecosyste degradation. This is one of Vero’s doctoral dissertation chapters, which she did in Ricardo Ojeda’s lab. Great work, Vero!
