Found 10 records similar to Alpine Vegetation - Nahanni

Federal

Forest ecosystems are a vital component of Nahanni National Park Reserve, covering approximately 80% of the park. Forest vegetation condition is currently a composite of three sub-measures: changes in (1) mature spruce stand growth rates, (2) mature spruce stand mortality rates, and (3) understory vascular species composition. The measure focuses on river valley white and black spruce-dominated stands. Data collection is conducted at permanent plots by field technicians once every ten years.

Birds adapted to alpine ecosystems are often sensitive to habitat and climate changes because of their niche specialization. For example, birds that are specialized to breeding in colder alpine conditions may be outcompeted by more generalist species if warmer conditions arise. Yearly data are collected at these sites using audio recorders to determine indices of bird diversity and occupancy trends to inform management.

Birds are the most diverse of land vertebrates and are an important indicator of ecosystem health. Large protected areas, such as Banff National Park, provide important habitat for a wide range of bird species. Data collected can provide a number of ecological indices; for example, used to assess the effects of land use and climate change. Yearly data are collected at these sites using audio recorders to determine indices of bird diversity and occupancy trends to inform management.

Glacier National Park provides important habitat for a wide range of bird species. As the most diverse land vertebrates, birds are an important indicator of ecosystem health. Yearly data are collected at these sites using audio recorders to determine trends in diurnal avian species abundance by species. Data can provide a number of ecological indices such as the effects of land use and climate change.

Monitoring pika occupancy and persistence over time will help to assess the impacts of climate change and the ecological integrity of Alpine Tundra ecosystems within Nahanni National Park Reserve. Annual visual counts of active hay piles by foot as well as auditory surveys are used to assess pika populations. Collared Pika are listed as "Special Concern" species by COSEWIC.
