Abstract

The foraging activities of many herbivores have been shown to be related to the protein content of their food. In the case of Barnacle geese,during the months of Febuary, March and April on the Dutch Waddensea island Schiermonnnikoog, this translates into the proteincontent of Festuca rubra. It has long been thought that protein is the limiting factor for geese in foodselection. The question arises which factors influence crude protein content in Festuca rubra. In this study, several factors have been studied. Secondly, the reaction of the geese on protein content of Feetuce rubra both small scale and large scale was studied. Finally, the importance of protein versus energy limitation is discussed.
