Short-term plant-community responses to large mammalian herbivore exclusion in a rewilded Javan savanna

Matthew Hutchinson, Arjun Potter, Muhammad Ali Imron & Satyawan Pudyatmoko
Grassy biomes such as savannas are maintained by a suite of ecosystem processes from herbivory to rainfall and fire. Many studies have examined the impacts of large mammalian herbivores on herbaceous plant communities but few of these studies have been conducted in humid, fertile savannas. We present the findings of a short-term experiment that investigated the effects of herbivory in one such savanna. We erected large-herbivore exclosures in Alas Purwo National Park, Java where rainfall...
