HOW THE MOOSE CAME TO ALGONQUIN
Possible reasons for the decline of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) population in Algonquin Provincial Park during the late 1960s and early 1970s and the subsequent development of a strong moose (Alces alces) population are explored. Such factors as climatic severity, declining deer habitat, wolf (Canis lupus) predation, and the occurrence of meningeal worm (Parelaphostrongylus tenuis) are examined. The future of deer and moose in Algonquin Park is discussed.
