Brief DescriptionImprove understanding of the mechanisms that influence vegetation change, including fire, grazing regimes and climatic variation, and the ability of the ecosystem to sustain its characteristic biota.
Full DescriptionAim: Improve understanding of the mechanisms that influence vegetation change, including fire, grazing regimes and climatic variation, and the ability of the ecosystem to sustain its characteristic biota.

Key research questions:

1. How do survivorship and fecundity of different plant species vary with time since fire?
2. Do different herbivore species have contrasting effects on standing vegetation?

Surveys:

- Surveys of vegetation and fauna have been undertaken systematically in relation to fire and herbivore exclusions since 1997.
- Automatic weather stations and manual pluviometers recording daily precipitation, evaporation and temperature have been established progressively since 1994.
