      In social species, the hierarchical status of an individual has important consequences for its fitness. While many studies have focused on individual condition to explain access to dominance, very few have investigated the influence of the social environment, especially during early life. Yet it is known that environmental conditions early in life may influence several traits at by: 5. The subalpine and alpine zones of the White Mountains are considered a marginal environment even though resources are relatively abundant. Surface water in the form of streams and springs provides drinking water while meadows provide habitat for rodents—particularly, yellow-bellied marmots—desert bighorn sheep, and mule by: 5.

An investigation of the behavior and ecology of several contiguous harems of yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris) was conducted in an alpine area of North Pole Basin, Gunnison County, an elevation of 3, m, the study site differed from those of previous marmot studies in that no forest restricted interharem movement or social by: The yellow-bellied marmot (Marmota flaviventris), also known as the rock chuck, is a large, stout-bodied ground squirrel in the marmot genus.

It is one of fourteen species of marmots, and is native to mountainous regions of southwestern Canada and western United States, including the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada, and Mount Rainier in the state of Washington, typically living above 6, Class: Mammalia.

Yellow-bellied marmot is a species of small- to medium-sized rodents inhabiting the mountainous regions of southwestern Canada and the western United States, including Mount Rainier, Sierra Nevada, and the Rocky Mountains.

north to the Oregon border, and in the White Mts. of California and Nevada. Yellow-bellied Marmot Behavior/Reproduction. Although members of the squirrel family, marmots are a type of ground dwelling squirrel.

They are primarily terrestrial and diurnal. The basic social structure of the yellow-bellied marmot is a single male with a harem of two or three females. Yellow‐bellied marmots Marmota flaviventris in the East River Valley of Colorado were live‐trapped and individually marked annually from through These pooled data were used to produce a demography and life table for these years.

Females had significantly better survivorship than males beyond the first‐year age class, and the sex ratio became progressively female by: The Yellow-bellied Marmots ability to use cultivated food sources depends on the proximity of rocky shelter. Core zones were all steppe, Oak, and Ponderosa Pine.

In core zones, bare ground and non-forested habitats were good. Yellow-bellied Marmots are a thick-bodied, shorted-legged animal with a grizzled appearance.

They have tiny ears and a blunt muzzle with a distinctive white mark around the nose and mouth. Males are usually larger than females. They live in incredibly harsh environments often high up in the mountains in rock outcroppings. female yellow bellied marmots prefer rock outcropping that provide retreats for escape from predators and for hibernation (and are controlled by dominant males) gifts up front - female requires a male to give his parental investment up front in the form of resources that.

Alaska marmots are distinguished from other species of marmots by the black fur on top of their head, extending from the tip of the nose to the neck.

These marmots have coarse hair that ranges in color from brown and black to white. Their back usually has brown hair, with a lighter brown underneath the black-tipped guard hairs.

To find out if this is so, Daniel Blumstein of the University of California, Los Angeles, and colleagues studied a population of yellow-bellied marmots living in the Rocky mountains in Colorado.
