Winter Habitat Selection by Black-tailed Deer on Vancouver Island
A Job Completion ReportMicroform - 1987
Results of a 5-year study on the selection of winter habitat by black-tailed deer, comparing the merits of a 10- to 40-year old pole-sampling stand and a 300-year old old-growth forest. A total of 28 radio-collared deer were located over 5 years for seasonal movements and winter habitat selection. Habitat use during specific winter conditions was compared to the available habitats determined from weekly locations. Research began during December 1981 and continued during the winter months of November through March until 1986. The study was conducted in the area of the southernmost tributary of the Nanaimo River on Vancouver Island.
