ECOTHERMIC RESPONSES OF MOOSE (ALCES ALCES) TO THERMOREGULATORY STRESS ON MAINLAND NOVA SCOTIA
The size of the mainland Nova Scotia moose (Alces alces) population has declined precipitously over the last several decades and their current distribution is discontinuous. In recognition of the
Thermal Properties of Tree Cavities During Winter in a Northern Hardwood Forest
Abstract Tree cavities likely vary in their thermal quality for cavity-nesting animals, which could be especially important during winter. We conducted a winter field experiment to test whether
Reproductive development of northern and southern strains of plum curculio (Coleoptera: Curculionidae).
TLDR
Rapid assessment of field-caught female reproductive status could assist in determining the potential for plum curculio damage in high-value commodities and allow for more informed control decisions.
Aggregation Pheromone of Metamasius spinolae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae): Chemical Analysis and Field Test
TLDR
Preliminary field experiments showed that significantly more adult cactus weevils were caught in traps baited with the major single compound three or the 2 + 3 binary combination than in unbaited control traps, however, highest trap efficacy occurred with the 1 + 2 binary combination and a blend of all three synthetic compounds plus prickly pear.
Use of Residue Profile Analysis to Identify Modes of Insecticide Activity Contributing to Control of Plum Curculio in Apples
TLDR
The value of the plant–insect–chemistry triad model for describing the temporal dimensions of insecticidal modes of activity and understanding a compound’s critical performance characteristics is discussed.
Winter nest trees of sympatric northern (Glaucomys sabrinus) and southern (Glaucomys volans) flying squirrels: a test of reinforcement in a hybrid zone
TLDR
Overall, there is relatively little overlap in winter nest use between flying squirrel species, despite evidence for hybridization at this site, and some weak evidence for increased divergence between species in nest use over 11 years.

Reproductive Development of Northern and Southern Strains of Plum Curculio (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
Abstract Laboratory-reared southern and field-collected northern strains of plum curculio, Conotrachelus nenuphar (Herbst), were sampled to examine the relationship between degree-day (DD)
