The Reversibility of Changes in Species Composition, Production and Soil Properties Following Defoliation, Trampling and Application of Excreta

Isichei, A. O. (1988)

Report of a Meeting of an IUBS Working Group Decade of the Tropics Programme on Tropical Savanna Ecosystems


An important notion underlying the experimental hypotheses is that it is not the direct effects of herbivory on the vegetation, but rather the indirect effects on soil properties which increase the irreversibility of changes to vegetation properties.
