Rate this:
Comparison of the foraging behaviour and nutrition of Stone's sheep (Ovisdalli stonei) which had access to burned range to that of sheep on unburnedrange throughout the year. Range burning is widely used in northern BritishColumbia in an effort to improve wildlife habitat, since it converts subalpine spruce and poplar forest into grassland. The sheep were counted byboth field work and helicopter and fixed-wing surveys and the forage biomasswas measured by clipping all the plant material from 6-10 randomly selectedplots, and then sorted. Samples of soil from several ranges as well asseveral mineral licks were collected for analysis. Food habitat analysisincluded fecal fragment analysis, rumen analysis and direct observation.
