  • Factors affecting territory size in wolves Canis lupus were studied at 2 scales, the local population (Bial owieza Primeval Forest (BPF), eastern Poland) and the geographic range of species (literature review from 14 localities in the Holarctic). Four packs of wolves were studied by radio-tracking in BPF from 1994 to 1999. The annual territories of packs (Minimum convex polygons with 95% of locations) averaged 201 km 2 (SD 63, range 116 � 310). Core areas of territories (50% MCP) covered from… CONTINUE READING
