Abstract

Vegetation changes in the Reserve have been quantified using 1937, 1960 and 1975 aerial photographs, and related to management history. Intensive woody plant removal operations and controlled burning applications have not been effective in retarding the long term rate of shrub and tree encroachment. Significant reductions in tall grass cover attributed to sustained overgrazing have occurred. (AJC).
