    If there's a lightly grazed field, (Long grass - dominant species) ...

    So there's long blades of grass that are transpiring meaning the air around the plants shorter (beneath) them is moist, does that mean less transpiration will occur? And if so, how does that mean the grass stays dominant?

    Also, in a field experiment, how is the size of the quadrat influential? Surely if we kept it constant then it will still be complimentary?

    And also (sorry!) if , when using a quadrat, the co-ordinate grid isn't random, how can we overcome this?
