  journal={Journal of Rangeland Science},
Range forage of Vicia variabilis, Astragalus spp., Medicago sativa, Prangos uloptera and Sanguisorba minor was sampled during three phenological stages from the controlled rangeland stations in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, Iran. Samples were analyzed for the determination of Crude Protein (CP%), Ether Extract (EE), Crude Fiber (CF), total Ash, Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF), Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), in vitro Dry Matter Digestibility (DMD) and Organic Mater Digestibility (OMD).

Forage Quality of Endangered Species of Astragalus fridae Rech. F. in Semnan Province, Iran
Forage samples of A. fridae were taken at four phenological stages including vegetative growth, flowering, seed setting and maturity over three years (2012- 2014) in Semnan province, Iran and result of analysis of variance showed significant differences.
Future forage plants for hill country systems
The issues currently limiting the performance of forage plants in hill country are largely unchanged from preceding decades. Low soil pH/high aluminium, low soil phosphate and low soil moisture or
Spatial variability analysis of precipitation and its concentration in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, Iran
The spatial variability of annual precipitation and precipitation concentration has been analyzed in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province using data from 42 stations between 1981 and 2012. For this


Chemical Composition and In Vitro Digestibility of Some Range Species in Rangelands of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province, Iran
In the early stage of growth, the quality of forage in range species is adequate for livestock production but during that stage, the greatest problem is its lower quantity.
Determination of Nutritional Value in Three Forage Species in Three Phonological Stages in Sabalan Rangelands, Ardebil, Iran
The mean level of predicted CP, ME and OMD for plants, especially in grasses (Festuca ovina and Alopecurus textilis) throughout the year, second and third stages of sampling (mid and late summer) and comparing the nutrient requirements of Moghanian sheep (native breed in Ardabil province) with data show that only at early stage of sampling, one can supply sufficient nutrient for domestics.
In order to determine the chemical composition and digestibility of dominant Graminea species, eight species including:, Stipa barbata, Bromus tectorum, Stipagrostis plumosa, Bromus danthonia,
Phenological Effects on Forage Quality of Five Grass Species
Abstract Information on nutritive values of each plant part in each phenological stage could help range managers choose suitable grazing times to achieve higher animal performance without detriment
Yields, nutrient quality, and palatability to sheep of fourteen grass accessions for potential use on sagebrush-grass range in southeastern Idaho.
Fourteen grass accessions were evaluated in terms of yields, nutrient quality, and palatability to sheep at the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station in southeastern Idaho and the interspeciflc hybrid produced the greatest amount of total biomass, but Russian wildryes (Psathrostachysjuncea), tall fescue, and the RShybrid (Festuca arundinacea) produced a greater proportion of leaf material.
