Biodiversity Conservation in Canada:
From Theory to Practice

Fig. 11.13. There is a linear relationship between total range-wide disturbance and the rate of annual caribou recruitment (r2 = 0.7). Disturbance is a composite measure that includes anthropogenic features, with a 500 m buffer added, and areas burned within the previous 40 years, with no buffer. The data are for 24 herds from across Canada. Adapted from EC 2011.
