- We found no evidence for the effects of employing areas of semi-natural habitat for rough grazing.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action
Rough grazing can be used to maintain habitats in an early-successional state. It can be enclosed (with limited stocking levels) or unenclosed. Studies describing the effects of this intervention are in ‘Threat: Natural System Modifications’ and split by habitat type.
