by Mezenc Marmots

Analysis of Sites Sun Exposure


The 3 sun exposures prefered by Mezenc marmots for settling their burrows are South (29), East (25) and North (19) representing 49 % of the sites.

Exposure choice depends also of the watershed considered (Loire or Rhone), marmots adjusting themselves to the topography particular to the plateau (Loire) or the valleys leading to the Rhone.
