Digestibility of plant constituents by Canada geese and Atlantic brant



Digestibility of plant constituents by Canada geese and Atlantic brant



Ecology (Washington D C) 67.2: 386-393



The ability of free-ranging brant (Branta bernicla) and free-ranging and captive Canada geese (B. canadensis) to digest various constituents of marsh plants was studied using lignin as a nondigestible tracer in plant food and faeces. These constituents included total organic matter, soluble carbohydrates, protein, total ether-soluble material, soluble phenolics, cell-wall polysaccharides, and phenolic acids esterified to plant cell walls.
