Description: Coues white-tallied deer (Odocoileus virginianus couesi) and desert cottontail (Sylvilagus auduboni), also known as Audubon cottontail, are inhabits of oak savannas in the Southwestern Borderlands region. Food, cover, and scattered water for these two species are found in this comparatively open ecosystem. The results of a study on the presence (occurrence) of Coues white-tailed deer and desert cottontail in unburned the oak savannas of the Southwestern Borderlands Region are presented in this paper. Effects of cool-season and warm-season prescribed burning and a wildfire on the presence of these two species are also reported.

Keywords: Coues white-tallied deer, Odocoileus virginianus couesi
