Ecological Processes That Affect Populations in Complex Landscapes
We describe a general framework for understanding the ecological processes that operate at landscape scales. The composition of habitat types in a landscape and the physiognomic or spatialExpand

Sources, Sinks, and Habitat Selection: A Landscape Perspective on Population Dynamics
In the model described, we attempt to link breeding-site selection to population dynamics for situations in which there is more than one distinct type of habitat. The distribution of individualsExpand

Factors influencing the location of deer-vehicle accidents in Iowa.
Half a million deer-vehicle accidents (DVAs) occur annually on North American roads, yet the possible factors associated with these accidents are not well understood. We examined the influence ofExpand

One of the most popular approaches for maintaining populations and con- serving biodiversity in fragmented landscapes is to retain or create corridors that connect otherwise isolated habitat patches.Expand

Communities in a Landscape: The Influence of Habitat Heterogeneity on the Interactions between Species
A model similar to the single-species source-sink models developed by Pulliam and by Pulliam and Danielson is described for species that have "distinct" habitat preferences and preemptive occupationExpand

The Influences of Conspecific and Heterospecific Residents on Colonization.
To determine if dispersing prairie voles, Microtus ochrogaster, are prevented from establishing home ranges in habitat already occupied by conspecifics or potentially competitive species, voles wereExpand

Habitat Selection in Geographically Complex Landscapes
The practice of landscape ecology is generally one that attempts to understand how patterns of abundances may interact with the physiognomic and compositional characteristics of landscapes (DunningExpand

Feeding in fear? How adult male western chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) adjust to predation and savanna habitat pressures.
OBJECTIVES We evaluated risk-sensitive foraging in adult male western chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) occupying a savanna environment at Fongoli, Senegal. The aim of this study was to determineExpand

Spatial Patterns in Two Syntopic Species of Microtines: Microtus ochrogaster and Synaptomys cooperi
Two years of live-trapping data were analyzed for spatial patterns within and between the species Microtus ochrogaster and Synaptomys cooperi in eastern Kansas. Within species, each sex wasExpand

Applying ecological principles to land-use decision making in agricultural watersheds
The use of ecological principles and guidelines in land-use planning, as advocated by the Ecological Society of America Committee on Land Use (Dale et al., Chapter 1) will be critically important toExpand
