Theodore Roosevelt National Park
This project was designed to determine the optimum population size for bison in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park (TRNP) by fulfilling the following objectives: 1. Delineate primary and secondary bison ranges; 2. Determine forage productivity for major range sites within primary and secondary use areas; 3. Determine the general seasonal food habits of bison in TRNP; 4. Determine range condition under present population density of bison and the maximum carrying capacity of primary use areas; and 5. Integrate range condition and carrying capacity estimates with management priorities for bison on the TRNP.
