Ecology and behaviour of the Cretan agrimi.
Date of Original Version
Capra aegagrus cretensis an endangered species of wild goat, was studied on Theodorou Island, Crete. The Theodorou population size was 89 agrimi. A mathematical model of population mortality indicated that the number of animals removed from the island between 1973 and 1975 equalled the expected natural mortality for both sexes. Agrimi had seasonal and daily activity patterns that minimized their exposure to high ambient temperatures. An age- and sex-specific social dominance hierarchy was found, with old males being most dominant. -from Authors Capra aegagrus cretensis Theodorou Island Crete.
