Native ungulates of diverse body sizes collectively regulate long-term woody plant demography and structure of a semi-arid savanna - Sankaran - 2013 - Journal of Ecology - Wiley Online Library

Native ungulates of diverse body sizes collectively regulate long-term woody plant demography and structure of a semi-arid savanna - Sankaran - 2013 - Journal of Ecology - Wiley Online Library | Rangeland Scoops | Scoop.it
