Seasonal Habitat Use and Movements of Woodland Caribou in the Graham River Drainage, 1988-94Microform - 2000
The Graham River Caribou Study was initiated in 1988 with two objectives: identify seasonal ranges of caribou in & adjacent to Engelmann spruce subalpine fir forests of the Rocky Mountain foothills in British Columbia between Williston Reservoir & Cypress Creek; and monitor seasonal movement patterns, with special emphasis on identifying use of forested habitats with potential for forest development. This report summarizes the results of the Study from its inception to May 1994. In the study, caribou were captured and fitted with radio collars for subsequent monitoring by radio telemetry from aircraft. Study methods are described and results are presented & discussed with regard to seasonal use of forest cover types, spring & fall movements, and home ranges. The final section contains recommendations designed to provide protection of critical caribou habitat and to gather the information necessary to develop integrated caribou/forestry guidelines.
