Rock ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) radio telemetry in Lierne, Norway

Latest version published by Norwegian Institute for Nature Research on Sep 17, 2019 Norwegian Institute for Nature Research

This data set is based on a small radio telemetry project on rock ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) in Lierne municipality, central Norway. In total, 85 rock ptarmigans were captured and radio-collared. After release, the birds were re-located with variable geographical precision (noted in the data). When mortality were detected, cause of death was as far as possible recorded. In the published data, cause of death is attributed to one of two causes (hunting OR other causes), and this information is available in the field "dynamicProperties" together with information about the event (capture OR radiotelemetry/recature). In some cases more detailed information about the event and state is available in the raw data.

Project Data

The purpose of the study was both to provide basic ecological knowledge about rock ptarmigan in Norway, and to assess the applicability and usefulness of a suite of field methods to study rock ptarmigan biology, demography and population dynamics. In addition to the radio-telemetry, pilot studies focusing on point-count studies and site-occupancy dynamics, as well as mark-recapture studies based on fecal DNA was preformed.

Title Rock ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) telemetry project in Lierne, Norway 2012-2014
Funding The project was funded by a grant from the Norwegian Environment Agency (grant #12040045; Rock ptarmigan demography and population status). All handling of animals were in agreement with Norwegian laws, and approved by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (approval ID 3960).
Study Area Description The main study area was in Lierne municipality, Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. All capture of rock ptarmigan for the radio-telemetry study was conducted around Lierne National Park. Point-count studies and mark-recapture studies based on fecal DNA was performed at Lifjellet, Lierne, Norway.
