Ensuring essential prior knowledge of the fundamentals of nutrition through peer-assisted learning strategies. The digestive functioning of selected wild ruminant and non-ruminant herbivores is discussed as well as their nutrient requirements and deficiencies that commonly occur. The spatial scaling of nutrients in vegetation is explained, followed by the foraging strategies that large African herbivores of varying body sizes use to adapt to spatial and temporal nutrient heterogeneity. Optimal foraging theory is discussed. This module supports the Sustainable Development Goals 2 (Zero hunger) and 15 (Life on land).
