AbstractThe proposal addresses the effect of free ranging herbivores on plant biodiversityThe

aim is to develop an animal mounted camera and intelligent sensing system torecord the

nature and quantity of food plants ingested by free ranging herbivores.The objectives are

to: (i) monitor herbivore grazing activity(ii) provide information about the impact of

herbivores on plant biodiversity(iii) make temporal and spatial measurements of foraging

activity(iv) provide insights into reproductive and social behaviour, territoriality,
