Seasonal and annual variations in earthworm consumption by wild boar (Sus scrofa scrofa L.)

E. Baubet, Y. Ropert-Coudert and S. Brandt

Wildlife Research 30(2) 179 - 186

Abstract

We investigated the annual and monthly patterns of earthworm consumption by wild boar in the Maurienne valley (Alps, France). A positive correlation (R2 = 0.79) was found between weather conditions and patterns of earthworm consumption. A positive correlation was also found between earthworm consumption rates and the occurence of 'worm nights', an easy and direct measure of earthworm availability.
