Studies of woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in the Birch Mountains of northeastern Alberta were conducted from January 1976 through June 1978. Twenty-nine caribou were radio collared and repeatedly located from fixed wing aircraft. Eight capture-related deaths were associated with...
Wolf Reproduction in Response to Caribou Migration and Industrial Development on the Central Barrens of Mainland CanadaDownload
Reproductive success of mammals is greatly influenced by food availability. Where wolves (Canis lupus) prey on migratory barren-ground caribou (Rangifer tarandus), caribou migration patterns strongly influence food availability for wolves. However, industrial development in formerly undeveloped...
This manual attempts to summarize and highlight information to assist in defining species habitat relationships relevant to Alberta environments and for a number of Alberta wildlife species. The degree of specificity of the summaries, in part or whole, varies according to the background...
Walking in Their Footsteps: New Approaches to Identify Behavioural Processes and Define Home Ranges Using Animal Movement DataDownload
Animal movement and space-use patterns influence the distribution and abundance of species, predator-prey interactions, and many other ecological processes. Different approaches are used to study individual's space-use strategies and each approach suffers from unique challenges. The mechanistic...
Understanding how populations are structured and how they use natural and anthropogenic spaces is essential for effective wildlife management. A total of 510 barren-ground (Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus), 176 boreal (R. t. caribou), 11 mountain woodland (R. t. caribou), and 39 island (R. t....
The life cycle and systematics of Parelaphostrongylus odocoilei (Nematoda: Metastrongyloidea), a a parasite of mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus hemionus), with special reference to the molluscan intermediate hostDownload
Doctoral thesis. Study area was within a 9 km radius of Jasper townsite.
Masters thesis. Mountain caribou studied from September 1975 to December 1977 from both population and phytosociological viewpoints. // "The Alberta Fish and Wildlife Division and Northwood are gratefully acknowledged for their assistance" -- p. viii.
The Role of Human Altered Landscapes and Predators in the Spatial Overlap Between Moose, Wolves, and Endangered CaribouDownload
Human altered landscapes can cause the endangerment or extinction of a species, not only by a direct loss of habitat but by altering predator-prey relationships. Predators can drive prey to extinction when the density of the predator becomes subsidized by another abundant, alternate prey. Such...
Masters thesis. Examines relationship between moose browsing and willow growth on a moose winter range.
Habitat protection has been identified as an important strategy for the conservation of woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus). However, because of the economic opportunity costs associated with protection it is unlikely that all caribou ranges can be protected in their entirety. We used an...
