MOOSE FEEDING IN RELATION TO POSITION OF FOOD PLANTS
Moose foraging on woody plants in winter was experimentally studied with respect to spatial browsing patterns. Within stands of low palatability trees located along the edges were browsed to a higher extent than trees and other positions. In stands of higher palatability no such pattern was found. The results are discussed with reference to optimal foraging theory.
