Age-specific Foraging Strategies Among Pumas, And Its Implications For Aiding Ungulate Populations Through Carnivore Control

Humans have been controlling carnivore numbers for centuries. Predator hunting, however, may indirectly influence predator-prey dynamics unintentionally by influencing the age- and sex-structure of predator populations that exhibit intraspecific (IS) variation in prey selection. We tested for IS in a … read more

Weak Spatiotemporal Response of Prey to Predation Risk in a Freely Interacting System

The extent to which prey space use actively minimizes predation risk continues to ignite controversy. Methodological reasons that have hindered consensus include inconsistent measurements of predation risk, biased spatiotemporal scales at which responses are measured and lack of robust null … read more

Predation Shapes the Evolutionary Traits of Cervid Weapons

Sexually selected weapons evolved to maximize the individual reproductive success of males in many polygynous breeding species. Many weapons are also retained outside of reproductive periods for secondary reasons, but the importance of these secondary functions is poorly understood. Here … read more

USFWS – Temporal use of the Nushagak Peninsula by wolves, Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, southwestern Alaska

We investigated the time budgets of wolves in the vicinity of the Nushagak Peninsula in order to understand their role as a population control of the Nushagak Peninsula Caribou Herd. Using a combination of conventional and GPS radio telemetry; we … read more

Wildlife CSI – Panhandle Elk Mortality Study

The Panhandle region placed 172 GPS radio-collars on 6-month old elk calves in the Coeur d’Alene and St. Joe River drainages since 2015. A couple reasons we collared so many elk was to determine survival rates and for those elk … read more
