I'm wondering how large animals can simultaneously increase sequestration (stimulating more vegetative growth through fertilization and grazing) but also reduce vegetative cover enough to increase albedo by exposing soil. It seems like those two responses to large animals would tend to pull in opposite directions. Is the idea that they are heavily grazing some areas to the ground, temporarily increasing albedo, followed by increasing sequestration (w/o lowering albedo relative to less grazed areas)?

I forgot to mention that I have a handful of resources on this topic at http://impactblog.sciencejon.com/ - they include a 2 page science brief, a couple of other interviews, video recordings of talks on the subject, etc.

Replying to Jon Fisher

A few colleagues and I compiled our lessons learned and recommendations for improving the impact of research and put it in an easy to read journal article at http://impact.sciencejon.com/

We also have a few shorter pieces to accompany the article, including videos, a science brief, and some interviews at http://sciencejon.blogspot.com/2020/09/how-scientists-can-improve-their-impact.html

Whatever you prefer is fine.
