Abstract: This article critiques the recent publication, Trees, Forested Landscapes and Grazing Animals: A European Perspective on Woodlands and Grazed Treescapes, edited by Ian Rotherham. The book focuses on the effects of grazing on vegetation cover and openness, and looks at examples relating to Frans Vera’s theory on grazing and original naturalness. Additional case studies presented in this article broaden the view of factors
influencing grazing dynamics and woodland structure.
