Reduction of intensive grazing

On one part of Želivka SCI majority of individuals of M.smejkalii were devastated by grazing by large herbivores (deer, hare, moufloms), leading to great reduction of produced seeds. To supress this intensive grazing, selected rocks were fenced. The fencing showed positive impact on serpentine vegetation and let to decreasing of overgrazing of flowering plants. Nevertheless, M. smejkalii is grazed also by mousses, which is not possible to reduce.
