The main purpose of studying the two areas was to determine the influence of long time cattle grazing on both vegetation and soil properties, and to use this information as guidelines for land use planning and treatment on other range areas of the same soils under similar climatic conditions. The objective of the study was to compare vegetation composition, herbage production, woody plant ground cover, and soil properties of the relict area to its adjacent grazed area.
