The alpine marmot spreads into the Catalan Pyrenees
Date:3/9/2010

CREAF-UAB also suggest that "the presence of the alpine marmot favours the biodiversity of the Pyrenees", the researcher highlights.

The benefits of the marmot

By again becoming an abundant species which is of a medium size, the predators of the Pyrenees have found "prey that is easy to capture". Studies on the remains of golden eagles' (Aquila chrysaetos) nests indicate that this bird eats marmot frequently. The scientists have observed that foxes also capture them.

"Very probably, the adaptive flexibility of marmots, the best climatic conditions on the southern slope of the range, and the lower density of significant predators, explain the rapid expansion of the species", Claramunt points out.
