Abstract: Throughout the range of the Canada lynx, snowshoe hares are considered their primary prey. Relative to northern populations, hares occurring in mountainous regions at southern latitudes are thought to remain at low and stable densities. Hence, the ecology of southern lynx populations is expected to resemble that of northern populations during the low phase of the hare population cycle. The space use, diet, and demographics of lynx in the Rocky Mountains of southern British Columbia and Alberta are consistent with this hypothesis, based on data collected from 10 lynx, including 6 (3M, 3F) resident adults, during 2 years of an assumed increase phase of a hare cycle. Mean hare densities were low, ranging from 0.010.47/ha among cover types and landscapes. Lynx diet (n = 137 kills) was diverse, and included hares (52%), red squirrels (30%), northern flying squirrels (5%), grouse (3%), martens (3%), and voles (3%). Kitten recruitment to winter was 0 among adult females for 4 lynx-years...
