STRUCTURE OF MOOSE (ALCES ALCES) POPULATIONS IN RUSSIA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO COMMUNICATION DISTANCES
The structure of moose populations was studied in the southern subzone of taiga and mixed forests. Moose were distributed irregularly in small groups. Some migrations were recorded. The distance between moose in compact groups (5–9.3 m) and the distance between groups were compared to orientation vectors a–k, representing one of the parameters of the inner activity rhythms. The distances and the vectors correspond to the definition of the critical levels of the development of natural systems. The spatial pattern of moose distribution was revealed and a canonic distribution model developed.
