Record #199951:

Diet and habitat of mountain woodland caribou inferred from dung preserved in 5,000-year-old alpine ice in the Selwyn Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada / Jennifer Galloway, and 8 others.

Title: Diet and habitat of mountain woodland caribou inferred from dung preserved in 5,000-year-old alpine ice in the Selwyn Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada / Jennifer Galloway, and 8 others.
Author(s): Galloway, Jennifer.
Date: 2012.
In: Arctic. (2012.), Vol. 65 (supp. 1) (2012)
Abstract: Notes that recent melting of ice in Selwyn Mountains, NWT, has exposed layers of dung accumulated during seasonal use of ice patches by mountain woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) of ancestral Redstone population over past ca 5,250 years. Although attempts to isolate DNA of known caribou parasites were unsuccessful, dung has yielded numerous well-preserved and diverse plant remains and palynomorphs. Plant remains preserved in dung suggest that ancestral Redstone caribou population foraged on variety of lichens (30%), bryophytes and lycopods (26.7%), shrubs (21.6%), grasses (10.5%), sedges (7.8%) and forbs (3.4%) during summer use of alpine ice.
Notes:

Arctic. Vol. 65 (supp. 1) :59-79 (2012).

Special issue: The archaeology and paleoecology of alpine ice patches.
