Record #176175:

Sea-ice crossings by caribou in the south-central Canadian Arctic Archipelago and their ecological importance / Frank L. Miller, Samuel J. Barry, Wendy J. Calvert.

Title: Sea-ice crossings by caribou in the south-central Canadian Arctic Archipelago and their ecological importance / Frank L. Miller, Samuel J. Barry, Wendy J. Calvert.
Author(s): Miller, Frank L.
Barry, Samuel J.
Calvert, Wendy J.
Date: 2005.
In: Rangifer. (2005.), Special issue No. 16 (2005)
Abstract: Investigates whether caribou at origin of sea-ice crossing site could see land on opposite side of potential terminus, by measuring straight-line distance from where caribou first come onto the ice (origin) to first possible landfall. Finds potential termini to be geodetically visible to caribou from elevated terrain from near 96% of origins of the 73 sea-ice crossing sites and still visible at sea-level at the origins on 68%. Notes usefulness of patterns of sea-ice crossings in understanding caribou population dynamics.
