A meta-analysis of the effects of habitat aridity, evolutionary history of grazing, and grazing intensity on bee and butterfly communities worldwide

Khum Thapa-Magar, Seth Davis & Maria Fernandez-Gimenez
A variety of habitat-associated factors moderate effects of grazing on insect biodiversity. Here, we examine how aridity, evolutionary history of grazing, and grazing intensity individually and interactively mediate the effect of livestock grazing on pollinator diversity (native bees and butterflies). Using a meta-analysis of 59 studies published in the primary literature we characterized the response of pollinator communities to grazing across several continents. In very humid habitats high grazing intensities generally had negative impacts on...
