overgræsning


Definition from Den Store Danske:
overgræsning, meget hård afgræsning af et område, så senere vækst nedsættes eller måske ophører.

Example sentence(s):
  • Rensdyrene vandrer hurtigt videre for at søge andre græsgange, når føden er sparsom, mens moskusokserne og får har for vane at græsse mere intensivt, hvorfor faren for overgræsning er mere udtalt for disse arter. - Environmental Protection Agency
