Description: The overall goal of this request is to provide predictive capacity about the demography and distributional response of mountain goats in Glacier National Park and other alpine environments on adjacent state, federal, and tribal lands where mountain goats occur. The objectives for this request are to: 1) Relate demographic parameters (parturition rates, kid survival, yearling survival) and body condition indices (growth and/or body mass of adult females and juveniles) to annual measurements of climate, snow pack, productivity, and phenology of vegetation on important summer habitats for goats; 2) Relate assimilated nutrition of goats to vegetation productivity and phenology; 3) Relate vegetation and snow conditions to yearly climatic conditions; and 4) Document habitat use by goats on a fine scale during summer, and a coarse scale during winter, to understand patterns and sources of mortality and
