Abstract
Many articles have been written with the object of condemning the goat as the major cause of deforestation, soil exposure and consequent erosion. Such arguments have been reviewed and supported by Maher (1945). On the other hand there is some evidence, summarized by Hornby et at (1948) that the goat is not the major cause of erosion, and may be beneficial because of its browsing habits which Inhibit bush encroachment.
