Moose

Overview

Moose (Alces alces) are an integral component of the boreal ecosystem in the ARCN. Moose have the potential to alter the structure and function of vegetation communities through browsing and biogeochemical cycling. Abundance of this species in the boreal forest is tightly linked to disturbance regimes, in particular fire. Moose are considered good indicators of long term habitat change within park ecosystems because they require large quantities of resources from their habitat year round, and populations have the potential to respond dramatically to long term changes in resource conditions. Moose are crucial to many subsistence communities as a primary source of food throughout most NPS lands in Alaska in addition to being harvested by the general public on NPS Preserve and Monument lands.
