Wild boar populations up, numbers of hunters down? A review of trends and implications for Europe.
It is concluded that recreational hunting is insufficient to limit wild boar population growth and that the relative impact of hunting onWild boar mortality had decreased, and more human-wild boar conflicts are expected unless this trend is reversed.
Jaguar and Puma Activity Patterns and Predator‐Prey Interactions in Four Brazilian Biomes
The findings suggest that temporal partitioning is probably not a generalized mechanism of coexistence between jaguars and pumas; instead, the partitioning of habitat/space use and food resources may play a larger role in mediating top predator coexistence.
The hard-tick fauna of mainland Portugal (Acari: Ixodidae): an update on geographical distribution and known associations with hosts and pathogens
This work is an updated revision of the available information on Portuguese ixodid tick species. It includes data on tick biology, ecology, taxonomy and host/pathogen-associations. The current list
Modeling the occupancy of sympatric carnivorans in a Mediterranean ecosystem
Site occupancy provides a reasonable estimate of population status and trends, and it also provides an unbiased, cost-effective alternative method for large-scale, multispecies monitoring programs.
Reproductive performance of wild boar females in Portugal
Conception and birth periods did not differ significantly between the considered 4 years, and birth synchronisation was pronounced in all the years, with a peak of births occurring in March.
Wild boar as a reservoir of antimicrobial resistance.
Spatial colonization by feral domestic catsFelis catus of former wildcatFelis silvestris silvestris home ranges
The need for urgent measures aimed at preserving wildcat populations should include a national census of the species and an extensive monitoring of genetic integrity of wild cat populations, followed by the elaboration of a wildcat conservation action plan.
