Abstract

In Adamello Brenta Natural Park (Western Trentino - Italy) a long-term study on galliformes started in 2007: its first phase regards Capercaille. The project was based on the experimentation of a methodology useful for a detailed monitoring of the species distribution during breeding period. Through a phonometer, a study for determining the sensibility of Capercaille towards human related noises was also set up.
