WOLF/MOOSE POPULATION MONITORING, ISLE ROYALE NATIONAL PARK

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

This project is intended to maintain continuity in a long-term study of the relationships between wolves and moose in Isle Royale National Park, begun in 1958. The purposes are to monitor the population changes of and understand the dynamical relationships between wolves, moose, balsam fir, and moose ticks at Isle Royale. The isolation of the island by Lake Superior creates a relatively simplified ecosystem that is less impacted by human activity and more readily studied than that on the nearby mainland.
