Record #188039:

Long-term control of Peary caribou numbers by unpredictable, exceptionally severe snow or ice conditions in a non-equilibrium grazing system / Frank L. Miller, Samuel J. Barry.

Title: Long-term control of Peary caribou numbers by unpredictable, exceptionally severe snow or ice conditions in a non-equilibrium grazing system / Frank L. Miller, Samuel J. Barry.
Author(s): Miller, Frank L.
Barry, Samuel J.
Date: 2009.
In: Arctic. (2009.), Vol. 62(2) (2009)
Abstract: Evaluates information from Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi) population on south-central Queen Elizabeth Islands as standard for accurate and realistic assessment of what controls Peary caribou population dynamics. It appears that Peary caribou on Queen Elizabeth Island are living in non-equilibrium grazing system driven mainly by abiotic factors (emergent properties), particularly by exceptionally unfavourable snow or ice conditions. Changing levels of predation by High Arctic gray wolf (Canis lupus arctos) compound uncertainty.
