    Abstract : Älgen anses vara en symbolart för svenska skogen och i Sverige finns en lång tradition av att förvalta vår älgstam. Dagens älgförvaltning är ekosystembaserad, adaptiv och lokal förankrad med fokus på samverkan mellan aktörer som påverkar älgstammen för att nå älgförvaltningens mål ”en älgstam av hög kvalitet i balans med foderresurserna”.

  2. 2. Fire effects in a landscape of fear : food availability and perceived predation risk as potential determinants of patch utilization by herbivore prey

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : David Kymmell; [2019]
    Keywords : landscape of fear; forest fire effects; herbivore prey; camera trapping;

    Abstract : Context: A major effect of climatic change is the global increase in forest fires, which potentially creates an increase in food availability for herbivorous species. Also vegetation density and the numbers of tree logs increase in burned sites, and this is thought to influence the perceived risk of herbivore prey species, which affects their anti‐predator behaviour and thereby the patch utilization.

    Author : Laura Juvany Canovas; [2019]
    Keywords : ungulates; camera trapping; occupancy modelling;

    Author : Jonatan Sandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : browsing pressure; interspecific competition; multi-species;

    Abstract : In recent years several of the ungulate species present in Sweden have increased in both densities and distribution. Browsing pressure has mainly been attributed to moose but recent research shows that with more complex ungulate ecosystems new interactions and connections might emerge. READ MORE
