Elk, Cervus elaphus, habitat use related to prescribed fire, Tuchodi River, British Columbia

Canadian Field-Naturalist, 1053: 354-362
Elk, Cervus elaphus, habitat use related to prescribed fire, Tuchodi River, British Columbia
Elk habitat use was studied in 9 community types (CT) and 5 sequential fire history classes (FHC; 0-2, 3-7, 10-20, 40 and >100 years since the last fire) within an 18 860 ha study area on the Tuchodi River. Habitat use was determined from pellet group surveys, group observations, and winter aerial surveys in 1978-83. Habitat use by elk (Cervus elaphus nelsoni) was broader in summer than in winter, but in both seasons the CT used most was grass shrub.
