Résumé
The Nubian ibex is a threatened desert-dwelling mountain ungulate, whose ecology is littleunderstood, in part, due to the rugged terrain and remote locations which it inhabits. Here Ireport fundamental findings concerning the species demography, spatial distribution,behaviour, and movement using the ibex population of the North Judean Desert in Israel as amodel. This population resides in two adjacent nature reserves (‗Mazok Ha‘Etekim NatureReserve‗-MENR, and ‗En Gedi Nature Reserve‘-En Gedi), with En Gedi being a spatiallynested sub-population within the larger North Judean Desert population. I investigated threeaspects - demography, movement, and social structure - in parallel to a genetic study that wasconducted on the same populations. Combined, these aspects elucidate potential threats to thisand other ibex populations stemming from the species ecology, behaviour, and theirinteraction with the study-area‘s specific landscape attributes
