Record #202613:

Decline and extermination of an Arctic wolf population in east Greenland. 1899-1939 / Ulf Marquand-Petersen.

Title: Decline and extermination of an Arctic wolf population in east Greenland. 1899-1939 / Ulf Marquand-Petersen.
Author(s): Marquand-Petersen, Ulf.
Date: 2012.
In: Arctic. (2012.), Vol. 65(2) (2012)
Abstract: Examines decline and extermination of east Greenland's Arctic wolf population, based on analysis of 40 years of archival data containing records of 252 sightings of wolves and their tracks. Wolf population in east Greenland had not been harvested by Europeans before 1899. Once harvest began, no effort was made to stimulate population growth, partly because principles of sustainable harvest were poorly understood, but primarily because wolves interfered with more lucrative harvest of Arctic foxes (Alopex lagopus) by destroying foxes in traps.
