The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus), which occurs only in northwestern North America, is the only genus and species of its kind in the world. Its closest relatives are the chamois of Europe and the goral and serow of Asia.

The domestic goat is not closely related to the mountain goat. Stevens, Victoria. Mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) habitat utilization in Olympic National Park. Seattle, WA: University of Washington. M.S. thesis. The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus), also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a hoofed mammal endemic to North America.

A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and in Washington State book Mammalia.

This study used LANDSAT multispectral scanner (MSS) data to quantify the habitat of the mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) in Washington.

Twelve ground cover types were identified and quantified by acre and percent of total acres for the northern goat management units (1, 4, 23, 24, 31, 33, 36, 38) of Washington State.

Many species, including Mountain Goats (Oreamnos americanus), are known to visit mineral licks, but the extent and duration of use in Washington State book poorly understood because most studies consist of. 64 STATUS OF MOUNTAIN GOATS IN WASHINGTON CLIFFORD Ecological study of the mountain goat.

RICE 1, Research Scientist, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA,USA Abstract: Based on aerial surveys (–, adjusted for sightability) and subjective estimates for unsurveyed areas, I developed an estimate of the total number of mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) in.

The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus), also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a large hoofed mammal endemic to North America. A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice. Moun­tain goats pre­fer steep, rocky areas with cliffs or bluffs in alpine or sub-alpine re­gions.

They pre­fer areas with suf­fi­cient es­cape ter­rain (steep rocky areas), mod­er­ate slopes, mid-el­e­va­tions, and south­ern ex­po­sures. They mi­grate be­tween low­land win­ter areas and high el­e­va­tion sum­mer ranges.

Mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) are among the least studied North American by successful translocations from the early to mid‐s, introduced populations have greatly expanded within non‐native ranges, yet there remains a paucity of empirical studies concerning their habitat requirements and potential distributions.

Mountain goat, (Oreamnos americanus), also called Rocky Mountain goat, a stocky North American ruminant of the family Bovidae (order Artiodactyla).

Surefooted relatives of the chamois, mountain goats cling to steep cliffs in habitats ranging from ocean shores to glaciated mountain tops. Mountain goats are not really goats at all, but are members of the antelope in goats (Oreamnos americanus) are native to Alaska, the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, and a few other areas in the lower 48 states.

Much of Washington's mountain goat habitat is on federally managed land (national parks and forests). ABSTRACTI investigated seasonal altitudinal movements of 42 mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) in the Cascade Range of Washington, USA.

Because mountain goats typically move to lower elevations during the winter, I partitioned locations from Global Positioning System collars into summer and winter seasons based on elevation. Mountain goats, Oreamnos americanus, are native to the northern Rocky Mountains.

They have also been introduced to parts of South Dakota, Colorado and Washington. Predators The mountain goat's main predators are cougars also called mountain lions. This highly developed hunting machine stealthfully moves about the mountains and is a major threat.

Abstract: In Washington State, USA, mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) have experienced a long-term population decline. To assist management, we created annual and seasonal (summer and winter) habitat models based on 2 years of data collected from 38 GPS-collared (GPS plus collar v6, Vectronic-Aerospace GmbH, Berlin, Germany).

Scientific name: Oreamnos americanus Classification: Hoofed ruminant mammal Life Span: They can live up to 18 years in the wild. Size: Rocky Mountain Goats are approximately two and a half to three feet tall at the shoulder and four and a half to five feet long.

They weigh between and pounds, though the heaviest recorded goat was around. We demonstrate this approach by evaluating gene flow between isolated, genetically impoverished mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) populations in Washington and much larger, genetically robust populations in southern British Columbia.

In the s scientists determined that an introduced mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) population caused negative impacts to subalpine plant communities in Olympic National Park (ONP).These findings resulted in a controversial and costly mountain goat.

Mountain goats are native to North America. They inhabits the Rocky Mountains and Cascade Range and other mountain regions of the Western Cordillera of North America, from Washington, Idaho and Montana through British Columbia and Alberta, into the southern Yukon and southeastern Alaska. Although the mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) is not globally threatened, mountain goats in Washington have declined by more than 50% since the s.

While past unsustainable harvest is likely the cause of this decline, many populations have not recovered, and former historical habitat remains unoccupied despite nearly 20 years of.

History in Wyoming – The mountain goats currently found in Wyoming are not generally considered native to the State, but originated from transplants in Montana and Idaho. Mountain Goats Oreamnos americanus in the Cascades of Washington State, USA by Past research into Washington State's mountain goats has not documented well winter conservation planning and ecological studies of Washington's endemic mountain goat populations.

Bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) and mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) are important components of the faunal assemblage of Montana's mountainous ecosystems representing high-profile large mammals that garner substantial public interest.

While population restoration, augmentation, and introductions have traditionally been the predominant.

GPS location data collected from free-ranging mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) in the Cascade Mountains of the western United States to evaluate patterns of habitat selection while foraging during late spring and early summer. Slope of the terrain was the primary factor influencing resource selection.

Oreamnos americanus) is the single North American representative of a unique group of mountain ungulates called the Rupicaprinae, or “rock goats”. They are characterized by relatively short horns and a fondness for living in rugged terrain.

Mountain Goats are found in Washington in the Cascades, Selkirks, and have been introduced to the Olympics. Their primary habitat requirement is rugged terrain such as steep, rocky cliffs, projecting pinnacles, ledges, and talus slides.

They tend to prefer the area near treeline, but may move to lower altitude cliffs in winter. Oreamnos americanus. Introduction. Mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus), an em-blematic species of Washington’s North Cascades and the primary large mammal of North Cascades alpine zones, are estimated to have declined some 70% relative to historic abundance levels (Rice and GayWDFW ).

Because mountain goats. Mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) are not true goats—but they are close relatives. They are more properly known as goat-antelopes. These surefooted beasts inhabit many of North America's most spectacular alpine environments.

They often appear at precipitous heights, from Alaska to the U.S. Rocky Mountains, showcasing climbing abilities that leave other animals, including most humans, far.

Mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus), the emblematic species of Washington’s North Cascades and the primary large mammal of its alpine zones, are estimated to have declined some 70% relative to historic abundance levels (Rice and GayWDFW ).

Native populations of mountain goats Oreamnos americanus are sensitive to harvest. To assess the potential effects of limited hunting on population dynamics, we analysed long-term data obtained from aerial counts of 12 native mountain goat herds in Alberta, Canada, during – Seven herds were hunted until and five were not hunted.

Despite its vernacular name, it is not a member of ''Capra'', the genus that includes the wild goat, ''Capra aegagrus'', from which the domestic goat is derived. A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice.
