Record #176179:

Climate change and woodland caribou in northwestern Ontario: a risk analysis / Gerald D. Racey.

Title: Climate change and woodland caribou in northwestern Ontario: a risk analysis / Gerald D. Racey.
Author(s): Racey, Gerald D.
Date: 2005.
In: Rangifer. (2005.), Special issue No. 16 (2005)
Abstract: Discusses risk to woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in context of decline in range-occupancy and populations in north-west Ontario over past 100 years, primarily owing to human-induced factors. Climate forecasts suggest a 4-5°C increase in May-August mean temperature over next century with implications for extreme weather events, severity of forest fires, plant communities and abundance of prey. Notes attractiveness of older forest (preferred by caribou) to forestry industry, leading to conflict over ecological and economic values. Recommends precautionary approach to forest management and increased research and monitoring effort.
