Research Design to Determine Factors Affecting Moose Population Change in British Columbia: Testing the Landscape Change Hypothesis G. Kuzyk

Abstract: In response to declining Moose numbers in central British Columbia, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations initiated a five-year (December 2013-March 2018) Moose research program to investigate causes for the decline. This research design outlines the background and approach to how this research will be conducted. Adult female survival generally has the greatest proportional effect on ungulate population change so the approach is to maintain a minimum of 30 GPS-radio-collared (Global Positioning System) cow Moose in each of five study areas (i.e., 150 radio-collared cows). Monitoring of radio-collared animals will: 1) measure cow survival rate; 2) determine causes of mortality; and 3) examine how large-scale landscape characteristics and changes contributed to their death. Because Moose population declines coin-cided with a large-scale mountain pine beetle (MPB) outbreak, this research design specifically addresses landscape-level effects of pine tree mortality and associated salvage logging.
