Title: Effects of fire on deer habitat in the southeast

Author: Stransky, John J.; Harlow, Richard F.;

Date: 1981

Source: In: Prescribed fire and wildlife in southern forests; Wood, Gene W. ed.; A publication of The Belle W. Baruch Forest Science Institute of Clemson University

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Based on the literature on cattle range as well as that on deer habitat, it appears that burning temporarily increased the crude protein and P contents and the palatibility of most plants. It temporarily decreases quantity and fruiting of understory shrubs. All changes are influenced by the season of burning. The many site and stand conditions which exist in southern forests leave considerable room for further reasearch, particularly in the Piedmont and Mountains where few studies have been conducted.

Keywords: prescribed fire, white-taileddeer, foraye, nutrition
