    The term Southern Coastal Plain region is used to delineate the geographic area of the southeastern United States comprised of southern Georgia, southern Alabama, and northern Florida. The Southern Coastal Plain experiences a mild, temperate climate and can support a number of tropical and semi-tropical forage plant species. and domestic livestock, yellow sweetclover is an important range, forage, hay, and pasture species [20,62,64,66]. Yellow sweetclover will comprise up to 35 percent of pronghorn diet [5]. Mule deer diet consists of up to 77 percent yellow sweetclover in summer and early fall [16,20,44,45,49]. Kufeld [39] and Mackie [44] rated sweetclover as.
