Climate change has altered the timing of many ecological processes, especially in the Arctic. The initiation of nesting is a key signal of phenological changes in Arctic-nesting birds, and is possibly connected to the circumpolar trend of earlier snowmelt. We collected data on lay dates of 7 bird species, representing shorebirds, passerines, a bird of prey, and seabirds, nesting on Herschel Island, Yukon, Canada, in the years 19841986 and 20072009. Snowmelt was significantly earlier in the 20072009 period. Shorebirds and passerines showed trends to earlier lay dates in conjunction with earlier snowmelt; the other species did not. The strength of response in lay date was correlated with the general categories of foods known to be used by study species. However, six species showed a longer time interval between snowmelt and egg-laying in early compared to late springs, suggesting the need for further monitoring of how robust their responses to snowmelt are in the future.

Increased visitation to Herschel Island Territorial Park implies several threats and benefits to its breeding bird community. The annual arrival of tourists tends to coincide with the latter stages of incubation and hatching. Although this situation is useful for an interpretive program, it also implies several negative consequences for the birds (Talarico, 1989). In order to minimize and assess the impacts of tourism, this monitoring project was initiated to quantify and track bird abundance over time. The Fish & Wildlife Branch and the Parks & Outdoor Recreation Branch cooperated in project delivery. Collection of population data is also seen as potentially useful for determining other long term changes in the Arctic environment. For instance, the effects of climate warming or contaminants may be reflected in population numbers. The project goals were to: 1. Design a methodology for annually monitoring breeding bird populations on Herschel Island suitable to detect changes over time, notably those caused by human disturbance. 2. Conduct training sessions to familiarize park rangers assigned to Herschel Island with the process designed for monitoring bird numbers. 3. Conduct training sessions with Herschel Island Park Rangers in the techniques required for banding of raptors and sea birds. 4. Design and test working strategies with visitors to Herschel Island for Park Rangers to manage activities near critical nesting habitats. (Au)

This report, entitled Non-consumptive wildlife use on the Yukon North Slope, contains two parts, Part 1: The Effects of Wildlife Viewing: Tourism and Birds in Herschel Island Territorial Park by D. Talarico and D. Mossop, and Part 2: Bird Watching enterprise: pilot trip on Yukon North Slope by D. Mossop and D. Talarico. The report points out that non-consumptive outdoor recreation can adversely affect the health and well-being of animals by lowering productivity, causing aberrant behaviour, interrupting habitat and refuge use, causing habitat destruction, reducing habitat diversity, and increasing animal mortality. Bird watching, especially during nesting time, can cause sufficient stress to reduce birds' fitness. The report includes management recommendations for reducing wildlife disturbance. (ASTIS)

Do Clethrionomys rutilus females suppress maturation of juvenile females?   /   Gilbert, B.S.   Krebs, C.J.   Talarico, D.   Cichowski, D.B.

Summary: (1) If adult Clethrionomys females suppress the sexual maturation of juvenile females, removing adult females should allow juveniles to breed. We removed all adult Clethrionomys rutilus females on two areas of white spruce forest in the southern Yukon from June to August 1984 to test this hypothesis. (2) More juvenile females become sexually mature on the female removal areas. No juvenile females had litters on the control area whereas thirteen juveniles became pregnant and had litters on the female removal areas. (3) The estimated number of litters on the experimental grids was only 53% that of the controls, so juvenile maturation did not completely compensate for adult female removals. But the number of juveniles caught in live traps on the experimental areas was 88% that of the controls. (4) Survival of males and juveniles was no different on control and experimental areas. We infer that adult female Clethrionomys cause a 30-48% loss of nestlings and post-weanling juveniles before they are caught in live traps. (5) Although there is social control of juvenile maturation by C. rutilus females, this mechanism operates only at high density and cannot explain population fluctuations of C. rutilus in the southern Yukon. We have recorded two outbreaks of C. rutilus 11 years apart, associated with the decline phase of the snowshoe hare cycle and possibly caused by changes in winter food supplies or winter predation pressure.

Initial inventory and planning for the management of raptors on the Yukon North Slope has been an ongoing project since the early 1970s. In the interim, much of the area drained by streams of the Beaufort Sea have been covered in initial intensive surveys (see Platt 1975; Mossop and Hayes 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980). As well, various management options have been investigated including reintroduction of an extirpated species (see Peregrine Falcon Recovery project, this report) and harvest of the gyrfalcon, primarily for commercial reasons (Mossop and Hayes, 1981). The remaining task has been to complete the inventory but more importantly, to draw together all the work that has been done into a comprehensive analysis of raptor populations and an overall management plan for the future of these birds. A grant from Northern Oil and Gas Action Program (NOGAP), a federal/territorial funding agreement has made the present task possible. Difficult accessibility of the Yukon North Slope has been the factor limiting human use in the area. With the development of the North Yukon National Park and the Herschel Island Territorial Park, more human activity is expected in the North Slope area. Other options for this area include wilderness tourism, industrial site development and corridor transportation development. In the near future, activities associated with the oil and gas industry (both exploration and production) are the most likely industrial developments to occur. Although management planning recognizes all North Slope activities, it has prioritized petroleum development activities as its main concern. (Au)

The small mammal communities of boreal forest in the SW Yukon are diverse and little is known about the underlying reasons for this species richness. Niche differentiation through staggered periods of activity is one way in which similar species may avoid potential interference competition. In this study we describe the activity pattern of three rodents (the deer mouse, the northern red-backed vole, and the singing vole) from the summer solstice to the autumnal equinox. Activity was measured on two white spruce plots by checking live-traps at 2 h intervals over a 24 h period. We did this at monthly intervals between June and September 1984. The deer mouse was strongly nocturnal throughout the summer, while the northern red-backed vole and the singing vole were active both day and night. During the nocturnal period of deer mouse activity, approximately 80% of the red-backed vole population was active, and we conclude that there is no evidence of temporal niche differentiation between these two species. Only deer mice showed a seasonal change in activity pattern. As the days became shorter, deer mice became active earlier, so that by September they were active 4 h earlier than they were in June.

Generally, animals move within their habitats to gather food, reproduce and care for their young. Their movements are usually confined within a specific area called the animals' home range, and the patterns formed by these home ranges often reflect aspects of the animals' social system. In this study, the social ecology of two small rodents is examined by means of home range analysis of population data from a live trapping grid. The two small rodents are found in the southwestern corner of the Yukon, in a spruce moss boreal forest. The two rodents belonging to the Family Arvicolidae are the Singing Vole Microtus miurus and the Red-backed Vole Clethrionyms rutilus. It was hypothesized that if the vole's mating system was promiscuous, male home ranges would overlap more than one female's home range. This was found to be the case for red-backed voles only. It was also hypothesized that, if a maternal territory existed, the breeding females of one species would have ranges which did not overlap with each other and if an overlap occurred, the individuals would be related. This study was not sufficient to address this latter hypothesis, but does discuss similarities and differences between the social systems of various rodent species in this and other studies in the literature.
