MOOSE (ALCES ALCES) POPULATION CONTROL IN THE URALS
I discuss the spatial dynamics of moose numbers, contemporary hunting practices, and migrations based on the structure of the landscape and subsequent human modification. I conclude that a single population of moose, comprised of subpopulations of non-migratory and migratory animals, inhabits the Urals. An optimal ratio of those groups allows full usage of habitats and high population densities. Existing methods of using the resources of the Urals are considered. Forms, terms, norms, and structural characteristics of removal of animals belonging to different demographic classes are recommended for population productivity to be increased.
