American pika in a low-elevation lava landscape: expanding the known distribution of a temperature-sensitive species

  author={Matt Shinderman},
  booktitle={Ecology and evolution},
In 2010, the American pika (Ochotona princeps fenisex) was denied federal protection based on limited evidence of persistence in low-elevation environments. Studies in nonalpine areas have been limited to relatively few environments, and it is unclear whether patterns observed elsewhere (e.g., Bodie, CA) represent other nonalpine habitats. This study was designed to establish pika presence in a new location, determine distribution within the surveyed area, and evaluate influences of elevation… CONTINUE READING
