CME01 The Consumer Size Manipulation Experiment (ConSME) at Konza Prairie

Summary

Short name: 

CME01

Abstract: 

Herbivores of varying size classes exist with the grassland biome (large mammals, small mammals, insects), however their independent and interactive effects on grassland plant species composition and function are understudied. Here we aim to tease apart the effects of three size classes of herbivores within the Konza Prairie system, and whether these effects vary across fire regimes.
