Den Ecology of the Arctic Fox Alopex lagopus beringensis (Carnivora, Canidae) on Bering Island, Commander Islands

Abstract

The spatial distribution of 33 Arctic fox dens on Bering Island was studied, and a relationship between the burrowing activity of Arctic foxes and the pattern of vegetation near their dens was revealed. This activity was shown to change the structure of the plant cover, with the degree of change depending on the type of biotope.
