Models of the dynamics of large herbivore populations represent density feedbacks on the population growth rate either directly or indirectly through interactions with vegetation resources.

Models of the dynamics of large herbivore populations represent density feedbacks on the population growth rate either directly or indirectly through interactions with vegetation resources. Neither approach incorporates the spatial heterogeneity that is an essential feature of most natural environments, and modifies the population dynamics generated. This is especially true for large herbivores exploiting food resources that are rooted in space but temporally variable in quantity and quality both seasonally and annually.

Adaptive Herbivore Ecology describes plant-herbivore interactions in the context of large African mammals (such as antelope and cattle) and is written by the world-leading ecologist, Norman Owen-Smith

Adaptive Herbivore Ecology describes plant-herbivore interactions in the context of large African mammals (such as antelope and cattle) and is written by the world-leading ecologist, Norman Owen-Smith. The author develops computational models based on his extensive field experience and a comprehensive survey of the literature. These models represent a novel approach to the integration of concepts at physiological, behavioural and population ecology levels and have the potential to be applied to other areas of ecology

An innovative connection between adaptive behavior and community ecology in herbivores The adaptation of herbivore behavior to seasonal and geo- graphic variations in vegetation quantity and quality is inadequately modeled by conventional methods.

Adaptive Herbivore Ecology - by R. Norman Owen-Smith June 2002. The kinds of consumers we have in mind in this book are large mammalian herbivores, with the resource constituted by vegetation. Starting from the simplest phenomenological models, we work upwards towards models of interactive herbivore–vegetation dynamics. Caughley's (1976a) classical model is elaborated further, drawing upon metaphysiological modelling concepts developed by Getz (1991, 1993).

1 Models of herbivore–vegetation interactions . Examples of irruptive dynamics . Effects of irruptions on vegetation . Changing perspectives . Synthesis . Implications for conservation and management Acknowledgments References. 7 Towards an ecology of population dynamics Norman Owen-Smith. Being directly dependent on vegetation as a food resource, herbivore populations respond sensitively to patterns of plant growth, and hence to changing climatic and human inuences on vegetation dynamics.
