Grazing by both native herbivores and domestic stock is an important element in the development of saltmarshes in temperate regions. By removing the vegetation, the animals significantly alter the value of the habitat. Changes in grazing pressure can have both dramatic and subtle affects on the nature of the vegetation and its associated animals. As such, setting or changing grazing levels on a particular saltmarsh requires careful planning.
