DescriptionMule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), elk (Cervus elaphus) and cattle share rangeland throughout much of interior western North America. Considerable debate exists about the degree to which facilitation or competition occurs for forage between these three species (Nelson 1982, Wisdom and Thomas 1996, Miller 2002).
