Abstract: To manage for habitat integrity we must be able to identify features of high quality caribou habitat. Bradshaw et al. (1995) began to address this need by examining winter habitat selection at a coarse scale (1:250,000). They found that habitat polygons dominated by treed fens and bogs were selected by boreal woodland caribou; caribou avoided areas with little or no peatland habitat. Bradshaw et al. (1995) suggest that large areas of treed-peatland-dominated habitat are crucial to the survival of caribou in northeastern Alberta. Upland-dominated areas are considered unsuitable habitat (Stuart-Smith et al. 1997). We tested these conclusions by examining winter habitat use and selection for an adjacent, previously unstudied, caribou population. At the coarse scale, compositional analysis (Aebischer et al. 1993) was used to determine whether caribou in the Red Earth range select areas dominated by treed fens and bogs over areas dominated by upland habitat...
