Dark squares indicate a legacy of moderate grazing – which created a diverse mix of grass and forb species - and light circles indicate a legacy of low grazing – which shifted the community to only dominant grasses.

Over the last few years Californians have grappled with how to manage lands during times of both drought and plentiful rainfall. At SFREC and on Central Valley rangelands, one question is whether management that promotes high forage in wet years alters...
