    Description

    Chemical analyses and apparent in vitro dry matter digestibilities were obtained for mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) forages appearing in monthly diets. Relative values among individual forage species were calculated based upon nutrient contents and percentage composition in the diet. These data provide land managers with the means to more precisely assess some impacts of vegetation management practices upon mule deer habitat, and to aid in designing habitat improvements.
