Livestock and kangaroo grazing have little effect on biomass and fuel hazard in semi-arid woodlands

Samantha Travers, David Eldridge, Terry Koen, James Val & Ian Oliver
Using livestock grazing as a tool to manage biomass and reduce fuel hazard has gained widespread popularity, but examples from across the globe demonstrate that it often yields mixed, context-dependent results. Grazing has potential to deliver practical solutions in systems where grazing reduces not only biomass but also reduces fuel hazard by altering vegetation connectivity or composition. We assessed the extent to which recent rainfall, rabbit and kangaroo grazing and recent and historic livestock grazing...
