    In general, Grazing consists of bringing livestock (usually sheep, goats, or cattle) to infested sites, building a moveable fence and allowing the animals to graze on the Kudzu. Rotating pastures is important for both the animals and efficacy of treatment in order for the animals to have enough forage while also going over every section multiple times. In a single growing season, livestock are capable of eliminating up to 80% of the Kudzu’s biomass while also meeting their own nutritional needs. Like mowing, however, Grazing is only capable of removing the above-ground sections of Kudzu and must be repeatedly applied for several years in order to control the weeds (University of Idaho…

    The purpose of this experiment was to analyze meso- and microzooplankton feeding. Largely due to size differences, mesozooplankton (>140 μm) are important exporters of carbon and prey for larger organisms, while microzooplankton (100–140 μn) are important recyclers of nutrients, dominant grazers of phytoplankton, and key link in the microbial loop (Conroy et al., 2016; Uitto and Hallfors, 1996). Therefore, understanding this relationship between zooplankton and grazing will allow scientists…

    QUESTIONS 1. Is the diversity of mesoherbivores and grasses increased by mesoherbivore grazing and fire? 2. Is soil stability increased by increased mesoherbivore grazing and fire? HYPOTHESIS 1. It is hypothesised that holistic management and planned grazing via mesoherbivores will increase grass diversity and soil stability better than fire because mesoherbivores contribute more to the environment by increasing nutrients in the soil with mulch. They also keep the grass short and in a…

    Australia’s population growth will place enormous pressure on the food production industry as crop productions and livestock grazing must increase to support the growth (Ruiz et al. 2013). However, the competition for land between residential and agricultural uses has limited the availability of cultivable land (Ruiz et al. 2013). Thus, sustainability is a major concern as production industries are forced to move further out from the capital cities and thus, will drive the cost of food up (Ruiz…
