Seasonal dietary variations demonstrate the importance of certain plant parts during the year. A parallel analysis of their nutritional constituents provides further information on underlying patterns of consumption of the plant parts and the relative importance of key nutrients. I studied the diets of Lemur catta (ring-tailed lemurs) and Propithecus verreauxi verreauxi (sifakas), for 9 mo over a 13-mo period in the highly seasonal tropical dry forest site of Beza Mahafaly in southwestern… CONTINUE READING
