Samples of 32 plant species (24 woody and succulent species, 5 grasses, 3 forbs) used by Desert Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis mexicana) in the Harquahala Mountains, Arizona were collected bimonthly in 1982. All samples were analyzed for dry matter, protein, acid detergent fiber, neutral detergent fiber, lignin, cellulose, cell solubles, hemicellulose, ether extract, and ash. Woody and succulent plants had the highest protein levels (x̄ = 9.3% in September and October to 11.1% in January and February) followed by forbs and grass, respectively. Nutritional data are presented in tabular form as a reference source for wildlife biologists, range managers and scientists in related fields charged with managing Arizona's rangelands.
