CRANIAL MORPHOLOGY OF SOUTH-URAL MOOSE
Cranial morphology of most populations in the South-Ural region of Russia were studied from collections taken from 1972-1985. Nine different skull measurements were examined for each time period for differences. Interorbital width, skull length, and skull width varied through time. More favorable ecological conditions in the 1960’s than in the 1970’s, caused larger dimensions. Comparison with eastern Siberia moose and other populations are made.
