For determination of grazing capacity, information of forage quality is essential which is influenced by various factors. The main objective of this research was investigation on effects of species, phenological stages, and life form on values of forage quality indices of six range species. Species were two grasses (Bromus tomentellus and Dactylis glomerata), two forbs (Ferula ovina and Coronilla varia) and two shrubs (Salsola rigida and Artemisia aucheri). Samples were collected from two… CONTINUE READING
