An understanding of the interactions betnen vegetation and livestock grazing is of paramount importance to the welfare of the livestock industry. It is also important to know how these interactions affect the balance of the ecosystem. In general, observations of changes in vegetation provide an index for evaluating such interactions. Vegetation change is the main object of consideration in this paper. The study is concerned with some of the oldest pemanent native vegetation study plots in the Western United States. They are located on Horseshoe Flats of the Wasatch Plateau in Central Utah.
