Landscape fragmentation and modern agricultural techniques contribute to isolation of plant populations and limitation of seed dispersal. However, nature management techniques such as mowing and grazing cause considerable (long distance) seed transport in and between nature reserves. In this study, aspects of seed transport by mowing machines and large herbivores are investigated.
