Three foraging activities (random, markovian, and marginal value theorem) were tested to determine their effects on the energetics of moose (Alces alces). Net feeding efficiencies of non-random strategies were greater than the random strategy. In general, the results indicate that foraging strategy affects both moose energetic status and spatial patterns of browse distribution and abundance.
