Bison spatial mapping protocol : Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

Standard operating procedure/protocol for spatially mapping the Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge bison herd. This SOP is used in part of a study to analyze bison herd shifts, grazing, and movement patterns during the rut in July and August. If herd grazing and movements are significantly different during rut, this will imply the need to manage the herd differently during the rut months. This study has the potential to address two important points in bison conservation. Overall, this research will increase our current understanding of bison habitat use and carrying capacity in the national wildlife refuge system. This SOP covers mapping methodology and how to properly fill out data sheets.
