Bulk feeder or selective grazer: African buffalo space use patterns based on fine-scale remotely sensed data on forage quality and quantity

Abstract:

The distribution and behaviour of African large grazers are regulated primarily from the bottom up, with some species showing clear preferences for certain vegetation types. While the African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is sometimes considered a bulk grazer, other studies indicate that they can be selective and show seasonal variations in their home ranges. We used very high resolution satellite imagery to evaluate how the quality and quantity of the vegetation influence space use by buffalo he...
