• Chemical Composition and Digestibility of Plants From Annual Range and From Pure-Stand Plots

      Van Dyne, G. M. (Society for Range Management, 1965-11-01)
      Comparisons were made of within-plant weight distribution, chemical composition by plant part, and total plant digestion by nylon bag technique of mature annual grasses and forbs collected from pure-stand plots and adjacent range. Under the conditions of this experiment it would be erroneous to grow, harvest, and analyze plants from pure-stand plots in order to make inferences about their nutritive value under range conditions.
