Swamp wallabies and Tasmanian pademelons show intraspecific preferences for foliage
A preliminary experiment is reported in which differences in the palatability of the foliage of individual E. ovata trees were tested, using cafeteria-style experiments with captive swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor) and Tasmanian pademelons (Thylogale billardierii).
