Sample text

Theoretically, each allotment contained the diversity of forage and terrain required for a reindeer herd to go through an entire yearly cycle without intruding on the allotment of any other herd. 2 shows the allotments on the Seward Peninsula that were still in operation at the end of the twentieth century (Christie and Finstad 2009:255; Rattenbury et al. 2009:72). The map illustrates the generally small size and the density of reindeer ranges that was typical over much of Northwest Alaska in the 1920s and 1930s.

As reindeer herds proliferated and grew in size, the selection and delimitation of ranges became more difficult. They soon became political issues for the owners as much as biological issues for the reindeer. Now that the reindeer population of the study region has significantly declined, these problems have been reduced. ” Rather, there is considerable variation over the course of a yearly cycle in the size and composition of aggregations of caribou. Therefore, I wish to comment on the terms used to characterize caribou aggregations, since “herd” is no longer appropriate for that purpose.
