The Wolf Pack Map

Wolf pack migrations are complex phenomena driven by a combination of factors, including food availability, territory size, social dynamics, and environmental conditions. Wolves are known for their ability to cover large distances in search of resources, and their migrations can have significant ecological impacts on both prey populations and other predators in the areas they traverse.

An image is shown as an example of GPS tracking of multiple wolves in 6 different packs nearby Voyageurs National Park shows how much the wolf packs avoid each other's range. These maps were created by the Voyageurs Wolf Project team

Tracking wolf pack for for years in Yoyageurs national park show how much they avoin each others range.

Wolves are territorial animals, and their territories often encompass the range required to support their pack's food needs. Territories can vary greatly in size depending on factors like prey abundance, topography, and human activity. When resources become scarce, or when the pack size grows too large for the territory to support, wolves may start considering migration as an option.

Some wolf populations exhibit seasonal movements, particularly in areas where prey availability varies with the changing seasons. For example, in regions with migratory prey species, wolves may follow these herds as they move between their summer and winter ranges.

The social structure and dynamics within a wolf pack can also influence migration. Conflicts within a pack, such as dominance disputes, can lead to wolves leaving their pack and forming new groups in different areas.

Young wolves, often known as dispersers, leave their natal pack to seek out new territories and potentially establish their own packs. Dispersal helps prevent inbreeding within a pack and promotes genetic diversity in the overall wolf population. These dispersing wolves can cover vast distances in search of unoccupied or under-occupied territories.

Some wolves are known to undertake long-distance movements in search of new territories or suitable mates. These movements can span hundreds of miles and may result in the establishment of new packs in areas where wolves were previously absent.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
