A suite of characters describing digestive tract structure has been hypothesized to reflect the relative degree of specialization of the digestive system of rodent species along a continuum from a proteinaceous diet of seeds and insects to a cellulosic diet of vegetation. Similarity, it has been proposed that life history traits might reflect diet and digestive tract structure, with the most oppurtunistic species consuming the most energy-rich diets of seeds and insects. The five members of the rodent assemblage of agroecosystems of the Argentine pampa were found to be omnivores and varied in the relative proportions of seeds, insects, and vegetation consumed.
