Overview

The most comprehensive book ever published on the North American moose, this abundantly illustrated volume fully explains moose biology and ecology and assesses the increasingly complex enterprise of managing the species. Twenty-one wildlife biologists and researchers discuss moose taxonomy, reproduction and growth, feeding habits, behavior, population dynamics, relationships with predators, incidental mortality, and seasonal migration patterns. They analyze the effect of new strategies of moose habitat and harvest management - including the planting of late-winter cover, hunting regulations, and aerial and ground-level tracking methods. They also describe immobilization, handling, and translocation practices and discuss the future of moose management.
