I have heard that another problem is that pre 1788, there were all the mid size mammals that turned over the ground in the south west, and that there wasn't such a fuel load left on the ground. The mammals would dig over the ground looking for fungi, tubers, etc.

We have now lost nearly all the mid size mammals with foxes and cats. Rabbits do not do the same thing.
