Abstract

Spanish goats, used for fuel-break maintenance in chaparral, browsed scrub oak Quercus dumosa most and manzanita Arctostaphylos glandulosa least, choosing the most nutritive plant parts. The level of nitrogen in the shrubs probably has a greater effect on digestibility than either lignins or tannins.-P.J.Jarvis
