Abiotic environmental factors modulate effects of mammalian herbivory on plant communities and are critical to understanding likely impacts of wild herbivore declines. Our results also demonstrate need to be cautious when extrapolating results from exclosure experiments to predict the consequences of defaunation as it proceeds in the Anthropocene, as landscape level results often do not mimic experimental results.
