Estimating Gray Wolf Pack Size And Family Relationships Using Noninvasive Genetic Sampling At Rendezvous Sites

Studying the ecology and behavior of pack animals often requires that most, or all, of the pack members are sampled. A unique opportunity to sample all gray wolf (Canis lupus) pack members arises during the summer months when reproductive packs … read more

Two Decades Of Non-invasive Genetic Monitoring Of The Grey Wolves Recolonizing The Alps Support Very Limited Dog Introgression

Potential hybridization between wolves and dogs has fueled the sensitive conservation and political debate underlying the recovery of the grey wolf throughout Europe. Here we provide the first genetic analysis of wolf-dog admixture in an area entirely recolonized, the northwestern … read more
