      Minnesota Habitat Management, LLC SW Amelia Road | Glenwood, MN | () [email protected] Moose and black-throated blue warbler engage in a unique relationship through their use of shrubs, particularly hobblebush, in the forest understory. NSRC researchers tested the effect of moose browsing on changes in distribution and branching patterns of understory shrubs, leading to changes in habitat selection for black-throated blue warbler.

      Minnesota Moose Population: Using Forest Inventory Data to Assess Changes in Habitat David C. Wilson and Alan R. Ek1 Abstract: A preliminary analysis of changes in forest habitat in northeastern Minnesota suggests reduced acreage in recently disturbed and young forest as a contributing factor in moose population decline. This report also. Moose Habitat: Moose are typically associated with boreal forests throughout Northern Asia, Northern Europe and North America. Boreal forests consist of pines, spruces and larch trees. Moose habitat also includes open tundra where conifers such as dwarf birch, alder and willows grow surrounded by lakes, bogs and streams.

American Midland Naturalist The moose (Alces alces) population in northeastern Minnesota has declined an estimated 58% from to As in northwestern Minnesota, a number of complex ecological relationships between undernutrition, pathogens, predation, and environmental factors (e.g., habitat, temperature) are likely exerting pressure on moose and contributing to File Size: KB.

Mountain cranberry (Viburnum edule) is another palatable species that moose select for in a habitat, but is less prevalent. Overstories of spruce (Picea sp.) and balsam fir (Abies balsamia) are often used in winter as well.

determine moose habitat preferences and gain an understanding of moose habitat ecology in the study area. Specific objectives were to determine the relative importance of forest openings and closed-canopy areas to moose, determine an upper elevational limit of moose use, and how moose are affected by increasing snow depth with increasing elevation.

Moose Habitat Survey Mike Schrage, Fond du Lac Resource Management Division Introduction Fire and timber harvest are generally believed to be beneficial to moose (Alces alces) through the creation of early successional forest.

).The process by which moose expanded their range across North America, however, is still in doubt. Moreover, the manner in which 4 North American subspecies were formed in Cited by: Six moose (Alces alces) were radio-tracked to obtain data on movements and habitat use in northeastern Minnesota.

Winter home ranges consisted of a series of high-use areas connected by wanderings. It is well accepted that moose (Alces alces) often use early successional habitats in the boreal forest.

It is not clear, however, whether use of disturbed habitats represents a preference or simply that moose are more detectable.

Previous research based on visual observations assumed that moose were equally detectable in all cover types. We evaluated habitat selection of moose in northeastern Cited by: 9.

A study of habitat selection and distributions of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and moose (Alces alces) was conducted from July through December on a 5,ha burn that occurred in spring in northeastern Minnesota. Most use of coniferous stands within the burn by both moose and deer occurred in late fall and early spring, but they selected deciduous.

northeastern Minnesota was related to high January temperatures and that predation by wolves (Canis lupus) played a minor role. We found significant inverse relationships between annual wolf numbers in part of the moose range and various moose demographics from to that suggested a stronger role of wolves than heretofore believed.

Habitat Selection. In order for habitat to be suitable for moose, it must meet both feeding habitat and thermal cover habitat requirements. Requirements vary significantly from winter to summer, which results in different habitat variables and criteria for each season’s model (Ardea Biological Consulting, ).
