The phenology of some trees and shrubs in the four major woodland types is examined. Biweekly assessments were made of the abundance of leaf buds, young, ripe and dead leaves, flower buds, and open flowers, unripe and ripe fruits. Early leaf all was observed in debarked trees. Because there are differences in the phenology of the species and also vegetation types, a constant food supply is ensured. The most critical time for the animals is in October and November when mature leaves are least available.
