Abstract

A long-existing system of wolves (Canis lupus), muskoxen (Ovibos moschatus) and arctic hares (Lepus arcticus) in a 2600 km]2 area of Canada's High Arctic (80DG N latitude) began collapsing in 1997 because of unusual adverse summer weather but recovered to a level at which all three species were rreproducing by 2004. Recovery of wolf presence and reproduction appeared to be more dependent on muskox increase than on hare increase.
