      Sixteen forage species used by Desert Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus crooki) in King Valley, Arizona were collected bimonthly from November 1983 through October 1984 and analysed for dry matter, protein, ether extract, ash, and fiber. Results of the analysis are presented as a reference source for wildlife biologists, range managers, and others working in desert ecosystems.
