Abstract

The purpose of this study was to obtain basic information about the effects of grazing and trampling on various physical properties of the soil. Included are data on soil texture, rate of infiltration, soil moisture, degree of compaction, aggregate stability, and yields of vegetation under three main treatments. Research was also carried out in paths, congested areas, and artificially compacted plots. The 2 paths were located on moderately-deep soil on a gently-sloping hillside. Composition of the vegetation was similar to that of the moderately grazed site.
