, : Distribution and habitat use of the gray wolf Canis lupus L 1758 in the upper Apennine northern Italy Distribuzione e uso dellhabitat del lupo Canis lupus L, 1758 nell alto appennino reggiano. Hystrix, 152: 39-54

In order to define wolf ranges and seasonal difference in habitat use, wolf signs were looked for along 25 transects (271.2 km) from June 1997 to December 2000. The range occupied by wolf population greatly exceeded the boundaries of the study area. The analysis performed to assess wolf habitat selection recorded a significant difference between high prairies and clearing, positively selected, and mixed woods, beech woods and pastures negatively selected. The bivariated and multivariated analysis to study the relationship between wolf abundance and the indipendent variables show that wolf abundance is significantly and positively correlated to abundance of prey species.
