A SUMMARY OF RESEARCH ON MOOSE AND RELATED ECOLOGICAL TOPICS AT ISLE ROYALE, U.S.A.
The following summary evolved during the 35th North American Moose Conference, 1999, from a session that reviewed 40 years of moose and related research at Isle Royale National Park, Michigan, USA. The account here covers this history in more complete detail than was possible at the Conference, and includes studies and accounts that pre-date the beginning of the intensive moose-wolf research under Durward Allen, in 1958. A brief description of the key researchers is included. An extensive list of research papers on moose and moose-related studies at Isle Royale is provided. Also appended in a set of time-comparison photos of vegetation changes influenced by moose and beaver, provided by Philip C. Shelton.
