Kudu feeding on plants

21 November 2013

 

QUESTION:

Why will the kudu only eat for short periods on a specific plant?

 

ANSWER:

Due to increased tannin production in the leaves of woody plants when being browsed, a specific woody plant is protected from overutilisation because the leaves become unpalatable due to increased tannin production soon after browsing begins.
