Title: A statistical model of expansion in a colony of black-tailed prairie dogs

Author: Cincotta, R. P.; Uresk, Daniel W.; Hansen, R. M.;

Date: 1988

Source: In: Uresk, Daniel W.; Schenbeck, Greg L.; Cefkin, Rose (tech. coords.) Eighth Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop proceedings: April 28-30, 1987, Rapid City, South Dakota. Gen. Tech. Rep. RM-154. Fort Collins, Colo.: Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station: 30-33

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: To predict prairie dog establishment in areas adjacent to a colony we sample: (1) VISIBILITY through the vegetation using a target, (2) POPULATION DENSITY at the cology edge, (3) DISTANCE from the edge to the potential site of settlement, and (4) % FORB COVER. Step-wise regression analysis indicated that establishment of prairie dogs in adjacent prairie was most likely to occur when an area was near a densely populated colony edge with high visibility through the vegetation.

Keywords: Cynomys ludovicianus, population dynamics, regression analysis
