Robustus and M. rufus feed primarily on grasses which frequently contribute between 60 and 90% of the identifiable fragments of food in the stomach or faeces (Kirkpatrick, 1965; Griffiths & Barker, 1966; Chippendale, 1968; Storr, 1968; Bailey, Martensz & Barker, 1971; Bell, 1973; Griffiths, Barker & McLean, 1974; Dawson & Ellis, 1979). Dawson & Ellis (1979) found that grasses made up 61 % of the diet of M. robustus even though grasses constituted only 1 % of the ground cover at their study site.
This chapter considers the topic of constraint and in the following chapters we discuss variation within those constraints, or the set of adaptations which characterise the extant marsupials. Allometry Before we proceed further it is necessary to digress briefly and introduce the allometric methodology we shall use throughout this chapter. Readers wishing to avoid this discussion should proceed to p. 50. Many morphological, physiological and even behavioural features vary among individuals and species as a consequence of differences in body size.
Pahl (1984) has studied the diet and food selection of P. peregrinus in a series of plantations each containing different Eucalyptus spp. When offered a choice between leaves of different ages and species, P. peregrinus showed a preference for young foliage of E. ovata, E. radiata and E. maculata over old foliage of these species and foliage from understorey species such as Rubus fruticosus and Leptospermum juniperinum. E. cladyocalyx and Cassinia longifolia (Compositae) were avoided. The possums were in greatest abundance in plantations of the preferred eucalypts and these species contributed most to their diets.
