The effects of cattle grazing on many functional groups were less pronounced in areas grazed only during the dry season, in contrast to areas grazed continuously throughout the year. Grazing had a deleterious influence on ground cover. While intermediate grazing caused a level of decline in ground cover that was beneficial to many species Cited by: 3. Duff, D.A.

grasses and forbs dominate, and cattle grazing helps increase native forb populations because the cattle prefer the non-natives as forage. By consuming the non-native plants, cattle let the butterfly-supporting native forbs grow. Grazing has indirectly increased populations of four Bay Area butterfly species that are federallyFile Size: KB. Grazing Management and Riparian Grazing Standards. During the study period (–), of the study allotments were grazed by beef cattle, 22 by sheep, and 16 allotments received little to no livestock grazing pressure (average annual allotment stocking rates between 0 and 5 animal unit months/km 2).

Title: SYNECOLOGICAL EFFECTS CF CATTLE GRAZING RIPARIAN ECOSYSTEMS Abstract approved: Signature redacted for privacy. Ina ten year project was begun to examine the synecological effects of livestock grazing riparian ecosystems.
A multitude of biotic arid physical factors, many which were unique to riparian ecosystems, inter. Grazing effects on grassland ecosystems Linda L. Wallace1 and Mel I.

EFFECTS OF CATTLE GRAZING ON NORTH AMERICAN ARID ECOSYSTEMS: A QUANTITATIVE REVIEW. Allison Jones. BSTRACT.—A quantitative review was conducted of the effects of cattle grazing in arid systems on 16 response vari-ables ranging from soil bulk density to total vegetative cover to rodent species diversity.

Key words: grassland, livestock grazing, riparian. Riparian habitats are critical to many species of wildlife (SkovlinSchulz and Leininger ), particularly in dry, grassland ecosystems (Thomas et al.
Kauffman and Kreuger ). Riparian ecosystems provide shade, a va-riety of quality forage, and drinking water in arid or semiarid. detrimental to stream and riparian ecosystems in the West.

Effects of Late Season Cattle Grazing on Riparian Plant Communities J. BOONE KAUFFMAN, W.C. KRUEGER, AND M. VAVRA AbSb8Ct Livestock impacts on riparian plant community composition, structure, and productivity were evaluated.
After 3 years of com- parison between fall grazed and exclosed (nongrazed) areas, 4. Grazing by domestic livestock is a major driver of change in grassland ecosystems.
Across the world, patterns of grazing are rapidly changing. Livestock grazing is intensifying and expanding in Asia and South America (Food and Agriculture OrganisationSmith et al.
).Cited by: AbSb8Ct Livestock impacts on riparian plant community composition, structure, and productivity were evaluated.
After 3 years of com- parison between fall grazed and exclosed (nongrazed) areas, 4. In the western U.S., riparian ecosystems cover 1% of land area while supporting % of native species. 70% of this land area is available as range for livestock, who use riparian areas preferentially.
Ecological concerns have led to numerous studies of the effects grazing has on these ecologically important, easily damaged ecosystems. Effects of livestock management on Southwestern riparian ecosystems David J.
Abstract.-Riparian habitats historically constituted 1% of the land mass in western North America. Within the past years, an estimated 95% of this habitat has been altered, degraded or destroyed due to a wide variety of land.

Issue Definition The U.S. federal government owns approximately million acres of land in the 11 contiguous western states, representing 48% of the total acreage. Domestic livestock grazing is permitted on million acres of thisFile Size: 31KB.
A number of studies have examined effects of livestock by fencing riparian areas to exclude grazing and then noting the effects on riparian vegetation and stream morphology. Magilligan and McDowell () selected four gravelbedded, steep streams in eastern Oregon and excluded cattle for 14 years to study stream changes.
Riparian ecosystems also serve as big game migration routes between summer and winter range (Thomas et al. ) provide routes and nesting cover for migrating avian species (Stev- ens et al.Wauer ). Importance to Livestock Livestock grazing on. Project Methods This project will examine how ecological services provided by wetlands on cattle ranches are affected by two widespread management practices, in two major pasture types, with a replicated experiment on entire wetland ecosystems.
The experimental approach will involve replicated manipulation of grazing and fire in wetlands within improved and semi-native pastures. on the effects of logging, silvicultural practices, fire sup-pression, disease, and road construction on forest stabil-ity and sustainable timber production.
The effects of livestock grazing on these forested ecosystems have re-ceived little attention.
