Simulation modeling of big game at Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge
Certain aspects of the population ecology of herds of bison (Bison bison), elk (Cervus canadensis), white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), and Texas longhorn cattle (Bos taurus) inhabiting the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in southwestern Oklahoma were investigated by analyzing data contained in existing refuge reports and related documents. The information obtained was subsequently used in validation studies for a simulation model (Program ONEPOP) designed to mimic the dynamics of big game grazing systems. The factors which influenced population sizes most in the four populations were ...
