    08 Mar 2021 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Mary Vanderschoot

    In a recent study of plants and herbivores on an island in the North Sea, ecologists made a surprising observation: Instead of more vegetation resulting in more grazers, more vegetation resulted in fewer grazers. Consequently, the ecologists hypothesized that, as the vegetation grew more dense,...
