MOOSE SOCIOBIOLOGY AND IMPLICATIONS FOR HARVEST
Sociobiology is defined as the systematic study of the biological basis of all social behaviour (Wilson 1975). It focuses on animal societies, their population structure, casts, and communication, together with all of the physiology underlying their social adaptations. This review paper outlines moose (Alces alces) sociobiology, with an overview of behaviour, and reviews moose reproduction. Various harvest management implications based on sociobiology are discussed to focus and stimulate discussion on what type of harvest regimes are appropriate for moose.
