Ecology of Kaimanawa feral horses at Waiouru, New Zealand

Steppe pasture digression resulting from grazing by different farm animals was studied by the transect method. Sheep, cattle, and horse pastures had markedly different dynamics of steppe vegetation under similar grazing loads. The most critical changes in plant communities occurred in sheep pastures. The best condition of plant communities was found in horse pastures.
