 en Preliminary Report on the Movement and Habitat Preference of Sclater's Monal at Mt. Gaoligongshan in Winter
LUO Xu HAN Lian-xian AI Huai-sen


The movement way of Lophophorus sclateria check for this species in other resources was directly observer at Danaozi in Mt. Gaoligongshan in Januaries of 2002 and 2003, and habitat perference of the pheasant was sampled by transect and quadreant methods. The pheasant usually glided down, and always walked up. Three sleeping sites were found on steep slopes with high canopy density, and close to the valley. The pheasant shifted down in witner, which may be related to heavier snow in higher locations, resultion in a dense use of the belt close to the valey. The movement way and pattern of habitat use are clearly bound to maximize foraging effectiveness and minimize energy expenditure.
