  • Habitat selection may have population level consequences and ultimately may influence a population’s local persistence or extinction. We capitalized on a longterm study (1962–2004) of yellow-bellied marmots Marmota flaviventris in and around the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, Gothic, Colorado, USA, and compared habitat characteristics associated with food availability and predation risk to explain variation in persistence of marmots at 27 sites, and their absence at 22 additional… CONTINUE READING
