Automatic recording of foraging behaviour as a tool for habitat and species conservation

Objective

The proposal addresses the effect of free ranging herbivores on plant biodiversity The aim is to develop an animal mounted camera and intelligent sensing system to record 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, vocalisation and interspecies contact. Prototype systems will be subject to performance tests/customer acceptance trials.
