Title: Hardwood regeneration helps wildlife

Author: Marques, Livia; Payne, Claire;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Fleshy fruit, or soft mast, is a key food resource for wildlife. Unlike many other wildlife foods, fruits are available throughout the year, particularly when other food sources may be scarce. Fall migratory birds and resident winter birds depend on soft mast because it is easily attained and high in energy. Fruit consumption has also been linked to the survival and reproductive success of several mammals.
