Description: One of the basic assumptions underlying research on wildlife habitat in the five Atlantic states of the Southeast is that white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) rely heavily on the ends of woody twigs during the winter. Considerable research has been undertaken to determine methods for increasing and measuring the availability of woody twigs to deer. This study was conducted to determine the relative importance of woody twigs to deer in the Coastal Plain, Piedmont, Southern Appalachians, and the Ridge and Valley Province of the Southeast.
