Appendix 6.7 - Figure 1. Initial parameterization for the Alberta study area of the relationship between caribou survival rate and proportion of landscape within 250 meters of linear disturbance features (roads and seismic lines).
Appendix 6.7 - Figure 2. Results from initial HexSim simulations for the north/eastern Alberta case study area under a) habitat condition without effect of linear disturbance, b) habitat condition with effect of current linear disturbance levels.
Appendix 6.7 - Figure 3. Population time series from HexSim simulations for the north/eastern Alberta study area showing long term fl uctuations around stable trend. These fl uctuations are driven by a combination of demographic stochasticity and dispersal limitation related to habitat pattern.
Appendix 6.7 - Figure 4. Predictions from the EMWCAC HSI model (averaged over a 100 km2 moving window) for the Manitoba study area for a) caribou summer habitat, and b) winter habitat, overlaid with linear features.
