A Range-Wide Survey to Determine the Current Distribution of New England Cottontails
Abstract The abundance and distribution of New England cottontails (NEC; Sylvilagus transitionalis) have been declining for several decades. Remnant populations in some regions are known to beExpand

Fine-scale spatial and temporal genetic structure of Atlantic cod off the Atlantic coast of the USA
Atlantic cod Gadus morhua in US waters are currently managed as 2 stocks: (1) a Gulf of Maine stock and (2) a Georges Bank and south stock. This designation is decades old and warrants re-evaluationExpand

Evaluation of fecal mtDNA analysis as a method to determine the geographic distribution of a rare lagomorph
Non-invasive genetic sampling of animal populations provides many potential benefits to wildlife biologists over traditional field methods that require trapping, handling, and repeated visits to theExpand

Limited influence of local and landscape factors on finescale gene flow in two pond‐breeding amphibians
Dispersal and gene flow within animal populations are influenced by the composition and configuration of the landscape. In this study, we evaluated hypotheses about the impact of natural andExpand

A multiscale analysis of gene flow for the New England cottontail, an imperiled habitat specialist in a fragmented landscape
Landscape features of anthropogenic or natural origin can influence organisms' dispersal patterns and the connectivity of populations. Understanding these relationships is of broad interest inExpand

Consequences of a mismatch between biological and management units on our perception of Atlantic cod off New England
A mismatch between the scale of fishery management units and biological population structure can potentially result in a misperception of the productivity and sustainable yield of fish stocks. WeExpand

Effects of body size on male mating tactics and paternity in black bears, Ursus americanus
The reproductive behaviour of large, solitary mammals is difficult to study. Owing to their secretive nature and wide-ranging habits, aspects of male mating behaviour are poorly documented inExpand

Population genetic structure and history of fragmented remnant populations of the New England cottontail (Sylvilagus transitionalis)
The New England cottontail (Sylvilagus transitionalis) has suffered from extensive loss and fragmentation of its habitat and is now a species of conservation priority in the northeastern UnitedExpand

Factors influencing detection in occupancy surveys of a threatened lagomorph
Successful recovery of populations of rare and cryptic species requires accurate monitoring of changes in their distribution and densities, which in turn necessitates considering detection rates.Expand

Genetic Mark-Recapture Population Estimation in Black Bears and Issues of Scale
ABSTRACT Abundance estimates for black bears (Ursus americanus) are important for effective management. Recently, DNA technology has resulted in widespread use of noninvasive, geneticExpand
