Estimation of the optimal grazing regime

In order to estimate the optimal grazing regime to ideally manage the grasslands and preserve their biodiversity, samples were collected from Mts.Oiti and Kallidromo.  The plant cover and biomass within and outside the cages were measured in the laboratory. Planned manipulations include two degrees of grazing pressure, corresponding to moderate (at the capacity level)and strong (twice the capacity level) grazing, as well as the control (no grazing). These will be applied tonon-improvedgrasslands well as grasslandsimprovedby controlled combustion or by removal (cutting) of shrubs and weeds.
