Feeding ecology and diet

All hares and rabbits are strictly herbivores. Their diets include green plant parts, especially grasses, clover, and, to a lesser extent, cruciferous and composite plants (e.g., dandelions). In winter, the diet also includes dry twigs, buds, young tree bark, roots, and seeds. In steppe regions, the winter diet consists of dry weeds and seeds. Most like cultivated plants such as winter grains, rapeseed, cabbage, parsley, and carnations. Both hares and rabbits may damage cereals, brassica crops, fruit trees, and tree plantations, especially in winter. Hares rarely drink when there are enough moist plants around, but sometimes eat snow in the winter.
