Rumen microbial ecology in reindeer - adaptations to a unique diet
Journal of Animal and Feed Sciences
Svalbard reindeer are isolated on the high-arctic archipelago of Svalbard under austere nutritional conditions, while the semi-domesticated Norwegian reindeer migrate between lush coastal summer pastures and inland taiga and boreal forest habitats with ground lichens in winter on mainland Norway. We propose that interactions between reindeer and Arctic plants through 15 million years of evolution have resulted in a unique rumen microbial ecosystem, and present data on rumen bacterial diversitydoi:10.22358/jafs/74100/2004 fatcat:rpksz4afxffgvoogq4ai2bca3y
