Abstract

This research has been targeted at describing the species composition of mammalian carnivores inhabiting Wind Cave National Park and at discovering the ecological factors structuring that subset of the animal community. Descriptive studies in 1988 indicated that the community is atypically simple for the Black Hills, and is dominated by coyotes. The objectives in 1989 were to compare Wind Cave to comparable areas outside the park and to discover the causes underlying the community's form within the park.
