An adaptive approach to endangered species recovery based on a management experiment: reducing moose to reduce apparent competition with woodland caribouDownload
Species that are rare yet widely distributed are among the most challenging to conserve. The mountain ecotype of woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus) is declining because of apparent competition with non-caribou ungulates (NCU) such as moose (Alces alces). I experimentally assessed whether...
Intake, rumen digesta pool sizes, ruminal digestion rates, passage rates of liquid and particle pools and faecal particle-size distrubutions of grass, browse and lucerne diets were compared in ruminally fistulated moose, wapiti and cattle. For each diet, ruminal digestion rates (nylon bag...
Energy requirements of moose (AIces alces) and wapiti (Cervus elaphus) calves were compared from December to February to determine whether metabolic requirements were lower in a boreal-adapted than in a parkland-adapted wild cervid. Eight calves of each species were divided equally into groups...
