Abstract [en]

The population dynamics of Mountain Hares on islands have been monitored during 10 years. In some years Red Foxes have been present on some islands. The intensity of predation on the hares is given from the reduction of the known hare densities, and from the foxes’ diet (scat analysis). The effect of predation on the hare populations was found to be density dependent, but also dependent on the alternative food available.
