Precise information about the occupied area, travels, roaming, group structure etc. is provided by telemetric data.  Selected bison are provided with a transmitter equipped collars and then observed systematically.  Based on conducted research, it was discovered that bison live in 60 – 70% of the total Bia這wie瘸 Forest area, thus virtually the whole its area is attractive to these animals.  The area occupied by a mixed group can reach 10000 hectares, while a single adult male can occupy 14000 hectares.  Individual groups occupy the same areas in the Forest year after year. Areas occupied by various groups can partially overlap and when the groups meet periodically, resulting in the bonding of the groups and exchange of specimens.  The largest areas are occupied by adult males, participating in breeding, since they usually visit several groups.  The winter area is typically significantly smaller and is equal to approximately 1000 hectares.  Weather conditions have significant impact on the size of the winter areas.  During frosty, cold winters with long-term snow cover, bison occupy the smallest possible areas and remain in the close proximity of the feeding location.  Frost and snow limit the mobility of bison groups. The research undergoing in the Bia這wie瘸 Forest represents the starting point for creation of new breeding.
