Grazing Ecology and Forest History
Very influential study which sets out to challenge the view that a climax vegetation of closed forest systems covered the lowlands of Central and Western Europe before humans intervened in prehistoric times to develop agriculture, testing the possibility that species composition and succession of vegetation were governed by large herbivores, producing a park-like landscape of grasslands, scrub, solitary trees and groves, bordered by a mantle and fringe vegetation.
