Microhabitat selection of rock outcrops in yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris)

Anne Burdette, Anna Catherine Klaassen, Mario Rodriguez &
The occupation of habitat by animals depends on their habitat preference as well as the accessibility of the space. Knowing how specific animals choose habitats, not only at large scales but also at micro scales, is critical to their conservation. We studied how yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris) in the White Mountains, CA, choose between different rock outcrop microhabitats, using scat as a proxy for marmot abundance and density. We found that yellow-bellied marmots have no...
