The recent paper by the the Caribou Program investigates seismic lines for their abundance of forage plants, which could attract predators of caribou such as bears as well as alternate prey for wolves, such as moose.

This graphical abstract was made to accompany the paper. It was illustrated by Jennifer Hird, with content by Caribou Program Lead Laura Finnegan.
