Abstract

Certain workers have studied the effects of herbivore action on the growth of seedlings under mature chaparral cover. Keeley and Hays (1976) examined the impact of seed-eating herbivores on seeds of such chaparral species as Arcto- staphylos glauca and Arctostaphylos glandulosa. In these and other studies, however, there has been no investigation of the effects that herbivore browsing might have on resprouting of chamise {Adenostoma fasciculatum) either after fire or following cutting.
