During a two year preliminary study, the spatial organization of a group of male Alpine ibexCapra ibex ibex Linnaeus, 1758 was examined in the Gran Paradiso National Park, Western Italian Alps, Italy. From December 1995 to January 1998 we measured annual, seasonal home range and home range during the rut, plus altitudinal migration of 13 radio-collared adult Alpine ibex. The small annual home range size showed a traditional use of space, confirmed by the high overlapping values between home… 
Factors affecting home range size of male Alpine ibex (Capra ibex ibex) in the Marmolada massif
In this study we investigated on the effects of different land cover types, meteorological conditions and age on the seasonal home range size of male Alpine ibex ( Capra ibex ibex ). The study was
Home range and migration patterns of male red deer Cervus elaphus in Western Carpathians
TLDR
Fidelity to seasonal ranges over the years, especially winter, was striking and comparable in both migrants and residents with increasing tendency throughout the year, although in both migrant types, significant descent was recorded during the winter.
Post-release spatial and social behaviour of translocated male Alpine ibexes (Capra ibex ibex) in the eastern Italian Alps
TLDR
The post-release behaviour of translocated Alpine ibexes in comparison with resident males is analyzed in order to test the short-term success of the restocking, provide some insight on the duration of the adaptation process and furnish some indications for future restocking programs.
Social dominance and conflict reduction in rutting male Alpine ibex, Capra ibex
TLDR
This study supports the hypothesis that costly intramale interactions are reduced during the mating season in Alpine ibex by the adherence to preestablished and stable dominance relationships, which in turn contributes to their superior survival.
Alternative Mating Tactics and Their Impact on Survival in Adult Male Alpine Ibex (Capra ibex ibex)
TLDR
Time-budget comparisons with another ungulate species suggested that although tending is a relatively costly tactic, coursing is a low-cost tactic that may contribute to the exceptional adult survival in male Alpine ibex.
Seasonal Altitudinal Movements of Mountain Goats
TLDR
W winters were generally longer than summers for mountain goats I studied, suggesting that the common perception of mountain goats as inhabitants of alpine and subalpine terrain is biased, because they spent the greater part of the year at lower elevations.
Population and Distribution of Himalayan Ibex, Capra ibex sibrica, in Hushe Valley, Central Karakoram National Park, Pakistan
TLDR
It is revealed that there is a considerable number of trophy size ibex in the valley, which suggest potential of trophy hunting in the Valley and appropriate use of wildlife resources for recreation, ecological values and economic purposes.
Influence of environmental factors on number dynamics and spatial structure of the tur (Capra caucasica) population in the Caucasian Reserve
TLDR
The number and structure of the tur population on the territory of Caucasian Reserve (Western Caucasus), as well as peculiarities of the effect of natural and anthropogenic factors on the population, were studied based on ideas of meta-population species dynamics.
Habitat selection in translocated gregarious ungulate species: An interplay between sociality and ecological requirements
TLDR
This work studied the temporal variation of habitat selection in 14 translocated Alpine ibex (Capra ibex) during the year of their release and the following 3 years to indicate that habitat selection by gregarious species in a new environment is primarily driven by specific ecological requirements and that sociality plays a significant role.

Habitat selection in adult males of Alpine ibex, Capra ibex ibex
Habitat use and selection of 14 Alpine ibex males were studied in the Gran Paradiso National Park. Alpine meadows were always overused and positively selected, because this habitat constituted an
Home range and activity patterns of male red deer (Cervus elaphus L.) in the alps
TLDR
Notable differences between sexes occur in the home range patterns and the annual cycle of daily activity of red deer in the Bavarian Alps.
Activity Patterns and Habitat Use of Ibex in the Himalaya Mountains of India
Studies of Asiatic ibexes ( Capra ibex sibirica ) were conducted in the Himalaya Mountains of India during winter and summer 1985–1986, with activity data collected during November–December. Ibexes
Site fidelity and seasonal range use by bighorn rams
TLDR
The seasonal dispersion of Rocky Mountain bighorn rams in southwestern Alberta was monitored over 5 years and it is suggested that gregariousness had a major role in determining distributio...
Home-Range Size of Wood Bison: Effects of Age, Sex, and Forage Availability
TLDR
Monitoring the movements of >60 radiocollared wood bison in the Mackenzie Bison Sanctuary, Northwest Territories, Canada, and adjacent areas between 1986 and 1991 found food and social class are important factors in determining size of home range of wood bisons.
Home-Range Size in Relation to Age and Sex in Moose
TLDR
First, body size, and thus nutritional demands, varies between sexes throughout the year; second, the strong relationship between age and home-range size among males is likely caused by social activities associated with rut, and, in particular with age-related dominance.
Winter ecology of nonmigratory Alpine red deer
TLDR
The food-supplemented herd has much more constant and predictable habitat use, combining an energy-saving strategy-choosing alpine pastures as low-cost winter home range-with high energy income at the feeding station.
Seasonal range selection in bighorn sheep: conflicts between forage quality, forage quantity, and predator avoidance
TLDR
Forage quality was higher at high elevation from mid-June at least through July, but forage availability appeared to be lower than in the winter range, and the antipredator strategy of bighorn ewes does not always allow them to utilize the range with the best forage.
Bovid Horns: An Important Site for Heat Loss during Winter?
TLDR
It is argued that the metabolic costs of possessing large horns in cold climates may impose constraints on morphology and sexual selection in Barbary sheep.
A review of factors affecting deer dispersion and their relevance to management
TLDR
The role of food, shelter and freedom from disturbance are reviewed in relation to deer dispersion and movements, and it is suggested that deer will occupy areas with a good combination of all the major factors rather than the best of any one.
