Abstract

We studied the habitat selection of Bezoar wild goats (Capra aegagrus) in the Agh-Dagh protected area in northwestern Iran. This species lives in mountainous areas. The species' habitat selection was modeled by incorporating various physical and biological variables in a logistic regression. Topographic features including aspect and slope, ranked better than components of vegetation in explaining habitat selection throughout the year, and were often excellent predictors of habitat use. During winter, aspect was selected by logistic regression as a significant variable
