    Livestock exclusion in fen wetland ecosystems can cause unexpected shifts in plant species composition. We documented increases in ruderal and upland species after fencing, likely resulting from biomass accumulation in the absence of herbivory, or changes in fen hydrology and nutrient status. These results suggest that degradation of fens caused by livestock may not be reversed by fencing alone.
