Grazing by large herbivores is a major factor determining the structure and species composition of upland ecosystems. The manipulation of grazing regimes by land managers can be a powerful tool in the management of upland habitats. To predict the effects of unmanaged, or managed grazing, an understanding is needed of the foraging behaviour, diet selection and intake of the large herbivore species found in the Scottish uplands.
