Abstract

Examined patterns of Opuntia phaeacantha pad herbivory by Tayassu tajacu in C Arizona. Peccaries fed on the pads of one morphological type of prickly-pear more than expected from its availability. Differences in spinescence affected pad choice, but other plant characteristics also were important. -from Authors
