Summer Habitat Selection of the Reintroduced Mrs Humes Pheasant Syrmaticus humiae



Summer Habitat Selection of the Reintroduced Mrs Humes Pheasant Syrmaticus humiae



Chinese Journal of Zoology 45.4 (Aug 20): 59-64



Habitat selection of the Reintroduced Mrs Home's Pheasant (Syrmaticus humiae) was studied from June to July 2008 in Cenwanglaoshan Nature Reserve. Total of 22 sites used by the pheasant were located in 7 transects crossing the whole study area. Twenty-four ecological factors associated with those used sites and 17 random plots were examined in the study area. The results showed that habitats were characterized by low altitude, low slope location, low average height of arbor, high herbs, large cover of deciduous leaf, large cover of shrub and grasses. The classification showed that the slope and herb cover were important factors. The overall classification model constructed from those two variables was successful to distinguish the habitats from random ones at the precision of 77.3%. Summer habitat selection of the Mrs Hume's Pheasant was mainly related to food and concealment.
