The purpose of this activity study was to promote a better understanding of behavior and movement patterns of wild reindeer, and to provide quantitative data on activity, linked with a simultaneously conducted study of food habits and range use. The results of these studies have been published and discussed in progress reports by Gaare et al. (1970), Gaare and Skogland (1971), Thomson (1971, 1973, 1975), and Skogland (1974).
