Cover for Effects of breed and stocking rate on vegetation dynamics and biodiversity in heath-gorse communities grazed by goats.

The objective of this work is to study the changes in plant and animal biodiversity of heathlands under goats' grazing in a Cantabrian range. Three treatments (in three replicates) were established: low (LC) and high stocking rate with Cashmere goats (HC), and high stocking rate with local goats...

Cover for Live weight changes of sheep and goats grazing a burned heath-gorse vegetation community.

Sheep and goat performance was studied on previously burned heathlands. Initially sheep and goats were allocated individually to two replicated plots, and managed during two consecutive grazing seasons (autumn 2001 and spring-autumn 2002) at 10 animals/ha. For the third grazing season (2003) each...

Cover for Management and ecological implications of silvopastoral systems in the Alps.

In the Alps, 15% of the mountain forests are grazed, mainly by cattle browsing young trees, thus reducing the protection function of the forests against natural hazards. In this study, the condition of young trees on subalpine wood-pastures was assessed, the selection of herbaceous species was...

Cover for Light availability for understorey pasture in holm-oak dehesas.

The percentage of radiation transmitted through the tree layer to the understorey pasture in dehesas of west-central Spain has been modelled. To achieve that, different allometric relationships between tree ages and stem diameter (DBH), and between stem diameter and canopy size (tree height, canopy ...

Cover for Pasture establishment for extensive systems.

It is important to determine the effect of tree cover (shade) on pasture establishment and productivity in silvopastoral systems. An experiment was carried out in Galicia to evaluate the effect of spring and autumn sowing and shading (0 and 50% reduction of incident radiation) on pasture production ...

Cover for Biological diversity in communities of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Erica ciliaris</i> and <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Erica tetralix</i>: analysis of their spatial and temporal variation.

The shrubland communities of Erica ciliaris and Erica tetralix, as in other types of West European shrublands, are so linked to human activity that the abandonment of their traditional uses in recent times has altered their areas. These communities form part of the typical mountain mosaic landscape ...

Cover for Rangeland health assessment in silvopastoral systems of northern Greece.

Silvopastoral areas in Greece dominated by deciduous oaks are mainly utilized by domestic animals but irrational grazing results in their degradation. The aim of this study was to identify which are the most important indicators for assessing rangeland health. In Lagadas county, northern Greece, 17 ...

Cover for Changes in biodiversity after abandonment in dehesa systems in the province of León.

The aim of this work was to determine the changes of diversity of plant community in relation to silvopastoral use. For this purpose seven zones with a different livestock pressure were compared, the cover of all understorey species was estimated and the diversity per quadrat (alpha diversity), the ...

Cover for Silvopastoral management in temperate and Mediterranean areas. Stakes, practices and socio-economic constraints.

The low productivity of many temperate and Mediterranean forests led forest managers to imagine original management plans based on multiple use and diversified practices aiming at summoning up others resources than timber. Among these, the most commonly promoted activities are grazing, professional ...
