In this issue of the Journal of Vegetation Science, Lezama et al. confirm the hypothesis that the effects of grazing increase with productivity, based on data from steppes and prairies in Argentina and Uruguay. Their study can serve as a starting point for further studies addressing questions on the mechanisms behind vegetation dynamics in grassland, emphasizing the need for experimental studies over larger climatic gradients.
