Abstract

The potential of sheep to establish new plant populations on restoration sites via zoochory is often discussed, but has rarely been quantified. In a 6-year field experiment we have shown that nine of ten epizoochorously-dispersed species of sandy grassland became established and partly increased in abundance over time. For all study species spatial patterns were analysed.
