Humans drive spatial variation in mortality risk for a threatened wolf population in a Canis hybrid zone

Large carnivores often exhibit high survival rates in protected areas, whereas intentional and unintentional human-caused mortality may be greater in adjacent areas. These patterns can result in source-sink dynamics and limit population expansion beyond protected areas. We used telemetry data … read more

Forest Carnivore Conservation and Management in the Interior Columbia Basin: Issues and Environmental Correlates

Forest carnivores in the Pacific Northwest include 11 medium to large-sized mammalian species of canids, felids, mustelids, and ursids. These carnivores have widely differing status in the region, with some harvested in regulated furbearer seasons, some taken for depredations, and … read more

Effects on White-Tailed Deer Following Eastern Coyote Colonization

The expansion or recovery of predators can affect local prey populations. Since the 1940s, coyotes (Canis latrans) have expanded into eastern North America where they are now the largest predator and prey on white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). However, their effect … read more
