The adaptation of herbivore behavior to seasonal and geo- graphic
variations in vegetation quantity and quality is inadequately
modeled by conventional methods. Norman Owen-Smith innovatively
links the principles of adaptive behavior to their consequences for
population dynamics and community ecology, through the application
of a metaphysiological modeling approach. The modeling approach
accommodates various sources of environmental variability, in space
and time, in a simple conceptual way and has the potential to be
applied to other consumer-resource systems.
