Figure 1: Mean production of reproductive units (see text for explanation) in two grazed semi-natural grasslands, Harpsund (a) and Pustnäs (b), and mean (per m2 and per species) relative fruit production (proportion of inflorescences developing to mature fruit stage) in Harpsund (c) and Pustnäs (d). Two grazing regimes were compared, continuous stocking from mid-May to early October (white bars) and late onset of grazing (grazing from mid-July to early October, dashed bars). Error bars show one SE. Asterisks indicate significant differences between grazing regimes within site (* , ** , *** , Mann-Whitney -test, N (Harpsund) = 20 per grazing regime, N (Pustnäs) = 7 per grazing regime).
