    Macdonald and Morris gave a series of constant term \(q\)-conjectures associated with root systems. Selberg evaluated a multivariable beta type integral which plays an important role in the theory of constant term identities associated with root systems. Aomoto recently gave a simple and elegant proof of a generalization of Selberg's integral. Kadell extended this proof to treat Askey's conjectured \(q\)-Selberg integral, which was proved independently by Habsieger. This monograph uses a constant term formulation of Aomoto's argument to treat the \(q\)-Macdonald-Morris conjecture for the root system \(BC_n\). The \(B_n\), \(B_n^{\lor }\), and \(D_n\) cases of the conjecture follow from the theorem for \(BC_n\). Some of the details for \(C_n\) and \(C_n^{\lor }\) are given. This illustrates the basic steps required to apply methods given here to the conjecture when the reduced irreducible root system \(R\) does not have miniscule weight.
