It is known that roe deer are concedered to be very choosy. It needs this sorting because the microorganisms, which help the digestion of high fibre plants, are missing in its stomack, that is why they are mostly called „concentrate selectors” (HOFFMANN,1985; 1988; 1989). These animals should mostly eat easily digestable plants with high nutrition level (pulses, buds, sprouts and flowers). Consequently they are able to do this sorting because of their small mouth size. At winter there is a lack of these plants, so the high selectivity occurs only when the feed is in abundance. Examining the amount and quality of vegetation available on the habitat of roe deer we can identify the species which can satisfy their feed demand. It is known, that roe deer as other large ruminants, in case of plant abundance prefer certain plants and plant parts while others avoided. The identification of the eaten species and the rate of their occurrence in the feed is the first step to become acquainted with the interaction between animal and the surroundings simultaneously.
