Pruitt, W.O., Jr. 1989. Application of the Värriö Snow Index to Overwintering Wild Forest Caribou Rangifer tarandus fennicus, in Eastern Finland (Mammalia: Cervidae) Aquilo, Ser. Zool. 24: 13-20.

 

Abstract

Calculated from 1363 api profiles measured in the Kainuu region of eastern Finland during winter 1983-1984, the Värriö Snow Index (VSI) models the winter movements and feeding activity of Rangifer tarandus fennicus there. Api-Rangifer "Periods" derived earlier also apply in general to this region.
