Food habits of the Uinta ground squirrel were investigated on some open meadows on the south-east slope of Mt. Timpanogos. Special emphasis was placed on species of plants eaten; and preference of plants in relation to season, succulence, and phenology. Other investigations were made in reference to: parts of plants eaten, non-plant material eaten, daily and seasonal activities in relation to foraging, feeding procedures, and the relationship between plant cover and Uinta ground squirrel activity.
