Summary

This dataset depicts Wolf (Canis lupus) habitat in the Northern Appalachians predicted using the spatially explicit population model PATCH under the current habitat effectiveness plus low US mortality plus moderate Canadian mortality scenario (Carroll 2003). This dataset represents one of several scenarios testing the effects of habitat effectiveness and mortality rates on wolf populations. Static habitat suitability models for wolf were fed through PATCH to predict source and sink habitat areas across the landscape. The static models for wolf were created based on current and projected habitat effectiveness, which were based in part on road density and human population density. Wolf fecundity rates were based on estimates of deer [...]
