Abstract

A cool-season grass pasture in Wisconsin was seeded with warm-season grasses and the effects of burning and grazing on warm-season grass establishment was studied. Burning alone and grazing alone increased tiller density while both burning and grazing reduced tiller density. Native plant diversity was greatest in burned plots.
