Equids in Grazing Systems
In this book, I have described the interactions of a population of equids with their food resources. In most circumstances, equids coexist with other ungulates in grazing systems. Their interactions with the other species, especially with the ecologically close grazing bovids, are key components of the functioning of the grazing systems. The considerable overlap between equid and bovid diets (see Chapter 4, Fig. 11) will lead to competition if either of the populations is food limited.
