Understanding The Impact Of Meningeal Worm, Parelaphostrongylus Tenuis, On Moose Populations

Declines in moose (Alces alces) populations have occurred repeatedly during the past century on the southern fringe of moose range in central and eastern North America, generally in the same geo-climatic regions. These prolonged declines, occurring over a number of … read more

We evaluated the non-consumptive effects (NCEs) of an active predator, the grey wolf (Canis lupus), … read more
