Shrub live oak,, birchleaf mountainmahogany, and Wright silktassel of the Arizona chaparral grew in spring until soil moisture was exhausted. Additional, but a lesser amount of, growth was made on summer rainfall. Although there was some variation among species, moisture, crude protein, and phosphorus were highest in early spring and, except for slight summer increases, gradually decreased in later seasons. Sprout use was heaviest during late spring when herbaceous vegetation was mostly dry, with mountainmahogany preferred. Sprout selection was associated with high moisture and crude protein, low crude fiber, and a comparatively wide calcium-phosphorus ratio.
