It says " The term predator-prey is usually associated with predators and animal prey but it is often used in relation to animals that feed voraciously on plants"
So, herbivores are referred to as predators, but I don't get why.

I agree with your sentiment. I think they are being clever with their use of the term - predators are usually animals that prey on other organisms. But to prey is to hunt and kill so that would be associated with animal-hunting.
