Record #176185:

St. Matthew Island reindeer crash revisited: their demise was not nigh - but then, why did they die? / Frank L. Miller, Samuel J. Barry, Wendy A. Calvert.

Title: St. Matthew Island reindeer crash revisited: their demise was not nigh - but then, why did they die? / Frank L. Miller, Samuel J. Barry, Wendy A. Calvert.
Author(s): Miller, Frank L.
Barry, Samuel J.
Calvert, Wendy A.
Date: 2005.
In: Rangifer. (2005.), Special issue No. 16 (2005)
Abstract: Re-examines population crash of introduced reindeer on St Matthew Island in winter 1963-1964. Challenges view that only density-dependent food-limitation was necessary to cause crash and presents evidence to demonstrate that winter weather was all-important factor leading to premature, extreme and exceptionally rapid, near total single-year loss.
