URINARY METABOLITES FOR ENHANCING ECOLOGICAL INTERPRETATIONS: A WORKSHOP
This paper provides outlines of 5 sessions in which an overview of various aspects of the use of urinalysis to monitor changes in nutritional condition of free-ranging ungulates was presented at the 35th North American Moose Conference and Workshop, Grand Portage, Minnesota, May 15 - 20, 1999. The sessions included in the workshop were: (1) Establishing the value of urinary urea N:creatinine as a nutritional index in ungulates: research and considerations; (2) Urinary purine derivatives as an index of dietary intake; (3) Scaling physiological models up to the population level; (4) Ecological interpretations for Yellowstone elk and bison populations; and (5) Ecological interpretations for the Isle Royale moose population. Presentations were followed by an audience discussion with the panel of presenters.
