      Start Preamble Start Printed Page AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior. ACTION: Regulatory review; determination. SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce our determination that our final rule to designate the population of grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) as a distinct population segment and remove that .   Greater Yellowstone Science says the park’s mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) are descended from those introduced in Montana in the s for hunting. It was part of the old guard thinking in wildlife management: the purpose is to produce more fun hunting. In the 7 years following their initial release, wolves have recolonized the square-kilometer (km 2) park and several adjacent portions of km 2 greater Yellowstone ecosystem (GYE). We use initial studies and field observations to determine the extent to which wolves may have already begun to restructure the Yellowstone ecosystem.   Introduction. Increasing human activity throughout the world threatens many species and subsequent ecosystem processes [].Basic metrics such as population growth rates are required to help understand how human activities, ecological conditions, and management actions affect the conservation status of wildlife populations.

Because the relatively recent colonization of portions of Yellowstone National Park by introduced mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) from public game lands in Montana raises important policy and management questions for the park, it is necessary to understand distribution prehistoric and early historical record of mountain goats in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
