    We completed 186 TME assays with mallards (n = 72) and gadwall (n = 114) between 2015 and 2018. Bioavailable energy (i.e., TME) of submersed aquatic vegetation was highly variable among duck and vegetation species as ...

    Our primary objectives were to 1) estimate true metabolizable energy of common species of submersed aquatic vegetation in semi-permanent marsh habitats of the Upper Midwest for gadwall and mallards during autumns 2015–2017, ...

    In order to improve the accuracy of energetic models used to set habitat objectives, estimates of energy availability and metabolizability for a variety of aquatic plants are needed. While true metabolizable energy (TME) ...
