AbstractSpring and summer diets of guanaco (Lama guanicoe) and red deer (Cervus elaphus) in northern Patagonia were determined by the microhistological analysis of their droppings. Forbs were the main components of the guanaco diet both in spring and summer. Spring diet of deer was comprised mainly of grasses, whereas the summer was comprised equally of trees, shrubs, forbs and grasses. These results indicate differential use of the area by both species.
