- How does the vegetation composition, structure, and cover respond to different population levels of feral goats in this area?
- Are there plant species that can be used as indicators of different population levels of goats?
- Can native plants recover and become dominant again with the reduction or elimination of goats from this area?
- Are there invasive plant species that respond favorably to reduction of goat populations and could result in additional management threats to this area over time?
- How does the succession of vegetation following goat control relate to the original composition and structure of the plant communities that were formerly found in this area?
