Regeneration of Sub-Antarctic Plants on Campbell Island Following Exclusion of Sheep
- Department of Botany, University of Otago, P.O. Box 56, Dunedin, New Zealand
- Present address: Grasslands Division, DSIR, Gore, New Zealand
Permanent transects, established in 1970 to monitor the effects of sheep grazing on subantarctic palatable and dominant plants, are assessed. Sheep have a detrimental effect on most species considered, but regeneration is vigorous on the sheep-free side of a fence-line dividing Campbell Island.
