    Description

    To predict prairie dog establishment in areas adjacent to a colony we sample: (1) VISIBILITY through the vegetation using a target, (2) POPULATION DENSITY at the cology edge, (3) DISTANCE from the edge to the potential site of settlement, and (4) % FORB COVER. Step-wise regression analysis indicated that establishment of prairie dogs in adjacent prairie was most likely to occur when an area was near a densely populated colony edge with high visibility through the vegetation.
