An individual-based, spatially explicit simulation model of herbivore-plant interactions on a heterogeneous landscape is introduced. The resulting model considers movement patterns, foraging, social behaviors of mammalian herbivores, recruitment, growth, and damage of individual tree seedlings. The model can be used to explore the implications of the interactions between organism response and landscape heterogeneity for a variety of systems and problems.
