Cover for Effects of grazing on fuel biomass in mountain pastures of the south-eastern Pyrenees.

There has been a large decline in the managed pastures of Mediterranean European countries. This has led to decreased biodiversity in the herbaceous layer, shrub encroachment and accumulation of fuel biomass (woody plants). This, in turn, has increased the risk of large forest fires. Consequently...
