FACTORS DETERMINING MOOSE POPULATION DYNAMICS IN THE CENTRAL FOREST RESERVE
We determined the main factors that led to a decrease in the moose population of the Central Biosphere Reserve. The role and importance of the factors in this process were defined. The key role of predation by wolf in the moose population decline is emphasized. The predominant factor leading to the decrease in the moose population was wolf predation, which exerted a pronounced effect on the moose population number and on its age and sex composition.
