A population census and the first stage of a muskox (Ovibos moschatus) habitat study was completed in 1992. Transects were established on a few sites where muskoxen were observed in late winter (early April) and were visited by helicopter in July. Ecosite, vegetation type and composition, slope and aspect were recorded on 500-m transects at 9 sites. A variety of different habitat types were utilized by muskox, although certain ecosites predominated in this small sample. No clear preference for a vegetation type could be determined, but muskoxen appear to select south-facing slopes.
