Record #176303:

Fecal pellet count as a technique for monitoring an alpine-dwelling social rodent, the hoary marmot (Marmota caligata) / Tim J. Karels, Lori Koppel, David S. Hik.

Title: Fecal pellet count as a technique for monitoring an alpine-dwelling social rodent, the hoary marmot (Marmota caligata) / Tim J. Karels, Lori Koppel, David S. Hik.
Author(s): Karels, Tim J.
Koppel, Lori.
Hik, David S.
Date: 2004.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2004.), Vol. 36(4) (2004)
Abstract: Evaluates faecal pellet counts as index of hoary marmot (Marmota caligata) group size, to develop simple and inexpensive method for monitoring population change of widely distributed but poorly studied mammal. Findings suggest that faecal pellet monitoring provides good index of marmot group size, with functional equation predicting marmot abundance in five independent social groups within 17% of observed group size.
