Summary

Wood bison (Bison bison athabascae ) were reintroduced into southwestern Yukon as part of a national recovery program in the late 1980s. The Yukon Bison Management Plan identified potential impacts of the reintroduced bison on other ecosystem components as a priority management issue. In particular, local residents expressed concern for the indirect effects of bison on the Aishihik woodland caribou ( Rangifer tarandus caribou ) herd resulting from competition for space and forage during late winter. This project assessed the potential for exploitative competition between bison and caribou by determining resource selection (i.e., use vs. availability) and overlap in resource use across 3 spatial scales: the landscape, habitat, and feeding [...]
