Abstract

Abstract A mathematical model for the depletion of grass biomass due to overgrazing by cattle migrating from plains to forested grassland is proposed and analysed. A model for conservation of the grass biomass is also suggested. It is shown that the grass biomass could vanish if overgrazing continued without any control. However, if appropriate effort is applied, the grass biomass can be maintained to its original level even under continued grazing.
