How Do Domestic Herbivores Select Nutritious Diets on Rangelands?
Howery, Larry D.; Provenza, Frederick D.; and Ruyle, George B., "How Do Domestic Herbivores Select Nutritious Diets on Rangelands?" (1998). Behavioral Education for Human, Animal, Vegetation, and Ecosystem Management (BEHAVE). Paper 52.
Animal learning has been shown to play a major role in the development of diet selection by domestic herbivores. Dr. Frederick Provenza and his associates at Utah State University have conducted a series of experiments over the past 15 years to learn how physiological and behavioral mechanisms govern diet selection. In this paper, we synthesize several key diet selection concepts presented in 4 recent articles (i.e., Provenza et al. 1992; Provenza 1995, 1996, 1997).
