Abstract:Winter habitat selection by moose was studied at Shengshan Forestry Center, the Lesser Khingan Mountains from 2002 to 2004 in October to March. Nine ecological factors including vegetation types, distance from road, distance from cut site, average snow depth, sheltering class, slope aspect, slope, slope position and elevation associated with habitat selection by moose were selected. SPSS software was used to analyze the influence of above factors on winter habitat selection. The results showed that the moose preferred deciduous broadleaved forest and shrub. Among nine ecological factors, sheltering class and slope position were relevant significant. The next factors were snow depth, slope aspect, distance from cut site and distance from road. The impact of slope and elevation to moose distribution were not obvious.
