We use an 11-yr exclosure experiment to estimate the effect of introduced herbivores on species richness, seedling recruitment and population dynamics of four shrub species endemic to the sub-alpine zone of La Palma, Canary Islands. Adenocarpus viscosus ssp. spartioides forms almost mono-dominate stands, although other shrub species are potentially present under herbivore exclusion and seem better adapted to the harsh high-elevation conditions.
