Seed addition via epizoochorous dispersal in restoration: an experimental approach mimicking the colonization of bare soil patches.
In: Applied Vegetation Science, 17 (1)
Article, Bibliographie

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.
