During a study on desert plants the scientist had 2 identical plots with annual wildflowers in both plots. One plot was enclosed to keep out herbivores such as the kangaroo rat. After 2 years 4 of the wildflower species disappeared and 1 species of wildflowers increase significantly. The unprotected plot did not change. What would be the reasons for this?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 1, 2020, 9:18 pm ad1c9bdddf

The expert examines the identical plots with annual wildflowers in both plots.
