The grey fox Canis griseus (gray) in Chilean Patagonia (Southern Chile)
MetadatosMostrar el registro completo del ítem
During May 1982 a total of 2235 km2 of land was surveyed in Southern Chile to estimate grey fox Canis griseus density. An area of 28 310 km2 was judged to be potential habitat for populations in the continental area including Riesco Island. The total number of grey foxes was estimated as 65 835, that is 1 fox per 43 ha. Despite the generally good habitat conditions and the lack of both disturbance and pollution, there is no certainty that the relatively good population level can be maintained in the future due to illegal hunting. An adequate management programme could couter this threat, not only for this species but for all wildlife in the area. © 1985.
