This browsing—induced resistance to future winter browsing by hares relaxes within 3 yr and within the height range of twigs normally available to snowshoe hares in winter. These results are compatible with hypothesis that the inducation and relaxation of resistance to browsing in the preferred winter food of snowshoe hares is a cause of the Cited by: (Banfield ).
The snowshoe hare was named for its extremely large hind feet which act as snowshoes in the winter. These hares average kg (Gadd ). Snowshoe hares are most active when they feed heavily just after sundown and just before dawn (Banfield ).
During the day they rest quietly in sheltered areas (Banfield ). The decrease in palatability helps to account for the snowshoe hare ‘crash’ (assuming that damage to more palatable plants is widespread during the ‘peak’), and the 2–3 year time lag for recovery of more palatable species could account for (May ) the observed 8–11 year period of the hare by: If snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus Erxleben, ) change their foraging behaviour through the population cycle as food supply and predation pressure change, these shifts could contribute to their population cycles by affecting survival and examined whether hares change their foraging movements and browse site selection in response to manipulations of food addition and.

For the past 14 years, my Winter Ecology students and I have spent a lot of time outdoors, studying the preferred habitat features and winter foods of snowshoe hares. We’re likely to find hare tracks hopping in and around lowland conifers near wetland edges, and then again at higher elevations, where the forest transitions into fir, birch.
The winter forage of hares was composed of deciduous stems that were predominantly low in protein content and not preferred. The crude protein content of the principal browse species, Viburnum dentatum, was only –% during winter months.
However, snowshoe hares feeding on the low-protein browse maintained their body weight. John P. Bryant's 86 research works with 9, citations and 7, reads, including: Publisher Correction to: Background invertebrate herbivory on dwarf birch (Betula glandulosa-nana complex. winter browse and cover, was preferred in New York.
They concluded that snowshoe hares may be best adapted to this habitat type, and that they may use small conifer stands when immature hardwood stands are scarce. In Utah, aspen stands with dense understories were believed to constitute marginal-to-good snowshoe hare habitat (Wolfe et al.

The hare cycle was caused by winter food shortage and the delayed recovery of winter browse damaged by excessive brows-ing by hares. The hare cycle was caused by changes in food quality as a result of heavy browsing by peak hare densities which triggered an increase in secondary compound production by the plants.
