A synthesis of scale-dependent ecology of the endangered mountain caribou in British Columbia, Canada

2008 Rangifer  
Mountain caribou are an endangered ecotype of woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) that live in highprecipitation, mountainous ecosystems of southeastern British Columbia and northern Idaho. The distribution and abundance of these caribou have declined dramatically from historical figures. Results from many studies have indicated that mountain caribou rely on old conifer forests for several life-history requirements including an abundance of their primary winter food, arboreal lichen,

These old forests often have high timber value, and understanding mountain caribou ecology at a variety of spatial scales is thus required to develop effective conservation strategies. Here we summarize results of studies conducted at three different spatial scales ranging from broad limiting factors at the population level to studies describing the selection of feeding sites within seasonal home ranges of individuals. The goal of this multi-scale review is to provide a more complete picture of caribou ecology and to determine possible shifts in limiting factors across scales. Our review produced two important results. First, mountain caribou select old forests and old trees at all spatial scales, signifying their importance for foraging opportunities as well as conditions required to avoid alternate ungulates and their predators. Second, relationships differ across scales. For example, landscapes dominated by roads and edges negatively affect caribou survival, but appear to attract caribou during certain times of the year. This juxtaposition of fine-scale behaviour with broad-scale vulnerability to predation could only be identified through integrated multi-scale analyses of resource selection. Consequently we suggest that effective management strategies for endangered species require an integrative approach across multiple spatial scales to avoid a focus that may be too narrow to maintain viable populations. <p>Abstract in Norwegian / Sammendrag:<br />Skala-avhengig &oslash;kologi og truet fjellvillrein i Britisk Columbia</p><p>Fjellvillreinen i de nedb&oslash;rsrike fjellomr&aring;dene i s&oslash;r&oslash;stre Britisk Columbia og nordlige Idaho som er en truet &oslash;kotype av skogsreinen (Rangifer tarandus caribou), har blitt kraftig redusert b&aring;de i utbredelse og antall. Mange studier har vist at denne &oslash;kotypen er avhengig av vinterf&oslash;den hengelav i gammel barskog hvor det ogs&aring; er f&aring; andre klovdyr og dermed f&aring; predatorer. Slik skog er ogs&aring; viktige hogstomr&aring;der, og &aring; forst&aring; &oslash;kologien til fjellvillreinen i forskjellige skaleringer er derfor n&oslash;dvendig for &aring; utvikle forvaltningsstrategier som kan berge og ta vare p&aring; denne reinen. Artikkelen gir en oversikt over slike arbeider: fra studier av begrensende faktorer p&aring; populasjonsniv&aring; til studier av sesongmessige beiteplasser p&aring; individniv&aring;. Hensikten er &aring; f&aring; frem et mer helhetlig perspektiv p&aring; fjellvillreinen og finne hvordan de begrensende faktorene varierer etter skaleringen som er benyttet i studiet. Oversikten v&aring;r frembragte to viktige resultater; 1) Uansett skalering s&aring; velger dyrene gammel skog og gamle tr&aelig;r. 2) Dyrenes bruk av et omr&aring;de kan variere med benyttet skalering, for eksempel vil landskap utbygd med veier og hogstflater v&aelig;re ufordelaktig for overlevelsen, men synes likevel &aring; kunne tiltrekke fjellvillreinen til visse tider av &aring;ret. Forholdet mellom atferd ut fra fin-skalering og stor-skalering s&aring;rbarhet hva gjelder predasjon, ville kun blitt avdekket ved flere-skaleringsanalyse av hvordan ressursene benyttes. Ut fra dette foresl&aring;r vi at forvaltningsstrategier for truete bestander som eksempelvis fjellvillreinen, m&aring; baseres p&aring; tiln&aelig;rminger ut fra ulike skaleringer for &aring; hindre at et for snevert perspektiv kan begrense muligheten for vedvarende levedyktighet.</p>
