Laboratory feeding preferences of 3 small mammals for 5 tree species

Laboratory feeding preferences of 3 small mammals for 5 tree species

Prairie Naturalist 13(3-4): 78-80

Peromyscus maniculatus, Microtus ochrogaster and Sylvilagus floridanus (12 of each species) were used in a feeding preference study with Pinus ponderosa, Funiperus virginiana, Fraxinus pennsylvanica, Ulmus pumila and Lonicera tatarica. Deciduous tress were preferred to coniferous trees as food items by all 3 mammals. L. tatarica was preferred by the 2 rodents; U. purmila and L. tatarica were preferred by rabbits over the other woody species tested.
