Summary

To counter-act the selective herbivory by western grey kangaroos (WGK) on re-vegetated mine sites, plant assessments and animal behaviour experiments were combined in this study.

The numerous outcomes included demonstration that WGK are more browsers than grazers, that herbivory was the most important environmental stress on the plants and that salts and tannins in plants are avoided by WGK.
