LI Jia-qi, SHI Hong-quan, LIU Naifa

Abstract

Habitat selection of Tibetan Snow Cocks in shrub vegetation was investigated in Lhasa, Tibet during March and April of 2005. Fourteen parameters have been measured, including: altitude, slope, slope aspect, position on slope, vegetation cover, plant type and other environmental parameters. The results showed that Snow Cocks like foraging in areas where the vegetation cover is small and close to residents' houses;Snow Cocks like roosting in areas where the vegetation coverage is low, grass types are few, the cover of grasses is low, with large rocks and close to residents' houses. From the results we found that the activities of Snow Cocks in research areas rely on human activities.
