Description:

Using written accounts, trapping records, and spatially referenced occurrence data, the authors reconstructed the history and distribution of lynx in the contiguous United States from the 1800s to the present. Records show lynx occurrence in 24 states. Data over broad scales of space and time show lynx distribution relative to topography and vegetation. For all three study regions (Northeastern states, Great Lakes and North-Central states, and Western Mountain states), high frequencies of occurrence were in cool, coniferous forests, with occurrences at primarily higher elevations in the West.

Keywords: lynx, snowshoe hares, ecology, habitat, northern lynx, southern lynx, lynx management
