Caribou, Moose and Predator Research

This summer UNBC graduate student and researcher Jake Bradshaw has continued his research on the interaction of caribou, moose and predators in and near the community forest.

Three types of forest: clearcuts, small logged patches and unlogged forest are being studied to identify

  • their use by caribou, moose, bear and wolves
  • the differences in moose and bear forage

This summer Jake increased the number of monitoring cameras from 57 to 65, the number of vegetation plots being studied for plant diversity from 129 to 184, and is studying 192 browse / pellet plots for measuring wildlife use.
