No place like home: an experimental comparison of reintroduction strategies using snakes
TLDR
It is contended that an individual’s prior experience is an important factor in determining their behaviour and performance during the phase of early establishment at an unfamiliar site, which suggests the existence of common underlying mechanisms influencing the outcome of reintroduction attempts, and provides a potentially useful framework for improving reintroduction efforts.
Comparative water snake ecology: conservation of mobile animals that use temporally dynamic resources
Abstract Obtaining information on movement and spatial patterns of animals and understanding the factors that shape their movements about the landscape are critical steps in designing conservation
Wetland and upland use patterns in semi-aquatic snakes: Implications for wetland conservation
Conservation efforts require detailed knowledge of a species' habitat use and movements about the landscape. We radio-tracked sympatric congeners, the Copperbelly Water Snake (Nerodia erythrogaster
Range‐wide analysis of eastern massasauga survivorship
Decisions affecting wildlife management and conservation policy of imperiled species are often aided by population models. Reliable population models require accurate estimates of vital rates and an
Wetland complexes and upland–wetland linkages: landscape effects on the distribution of rare and common wetland reptiles
TLDR
The results suggest that management practices should focus on protecting wetland complexes and maintaining upland–wetland linkages by improving landscape connectivity, increasing forest area surrounding wetlands and reducing road effects.
MOVEMENT AND MACROHABITAT SELECTION OF THE EASTERN MASSASAUGA IN A FEN HABITAT
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of movement and macrohabitat selection of massasaugas in a fen environment indicated a preference for emergent wetland vegetation by all individuals; however, wooded areas and meadows were used to a lesser extent.
Vital rates and population demographics in declining and stable watersnake populations
TLDR
Assessment of population biology and vital rates in the copper-bellied Watersnake (nerodia erythrogaster neglecta) to help elucidate potential mechanisms of their decline and inform more targeted recovery efforts.
Beyond the wetland border: Estimating the impact of roads for two species of water snakes
Abstract We used models integrating road maps, traffic volume, and snake movements to examine the potential for roads to contribute to mortality in two species of water snakes that differ in their
