Capitol Reef National Park
The objective of the 1989 fieldwork was the testing of a model developed in 1988. The main project objectives are to: (1) evaluate the success of the transplant operations; (2) investigate habitat selection behavior of desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis); and (3) develop a model which classifies areas suitable for sheep use. This model will then be incorporated into a Geographic Information System (G.I.S.) to examine macrohabitat use patterns. Software to be used includes: SAGIS, MAP, DBIII, and HOMER.
