Investigation of winter habitat selection by woodland caribou in relation to forage abundance and snow accumulation
Imprecision and misclassification of land cover types are two issues commonly encountered in habitat selection studies using satellite land cover classifications and telemetry data. Here, the utility of broad land cover ...
Bottom-up and top-down forces shaping caribou forage availability on the Lake Superior coast
Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus) occupying the Lake Superior Coastal distribution, Ontario, exist in three subpopulations with distinct ranges and demographics. In this study, three ranges are analyzed in terms of ...
Terrestrial lichen abundance in relation to stand structure and silvicultural history
