Abstract

The ecology of a reintroduced population of desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni} is being investigated in Arches National Park. National Park Service objectives are: (1) determine general ecological parameters, including population and social dynamics, seasonal distribution and habitat use patterns, and general health characteristics; and (2) develop a comprehensive program of habitat analysis and evaluation that can be used to determine habitat suitability and identify transplant sites in other National Park Service units.
