Relation between mountain goats and their habitat in southeastern Alaska


, : Relation between mountain goats and their habitat in southeastern Alaska. General Technical Report Pacific Northwest Research Station, USDA Forest Service ( PNW-GTR-246): i + 25 pp.

Mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) in SE Alaska occupy alpine and subalpine habitats in summer, but spend much of the winter in old-growth forest where litter fall and relatively low snow depths enhance food availability. Descriptions are given of the home range and movements, habitat, and ecological bases of goat/habitat relations.
