At the 14th North American Caribou Workshop held in September 2012, Kyle Knopff presented research done researchers from the University of Alberta, University of Montana and Golder Associates Ltd. regarding seasonal patterns of prey use by wolves in northeastern Alberta. The prey preferred by wolves varied by season, and the spatial selection of wolves also varied by season. Caribou, as secondary prey, were affected by these patterns.
