Wild horses pasture effect in Podyjí … return to the scene

Last week, our working group together with the help of one of our external members, Luboš Tichý, returned to PLA Podyjí. Last year we established permanent plots in two localities – former military range Mašovice and heathland Havraníky. Both localities are grazed by wild horses (Exmoor ponies).

Therefore, we have a unique opportunity to compare development of extensively grazed vegetation with non-grazed vegetation. Especially the effect of horse grazing on occurrence of woody species and shrubs.
