Canids : foxes, wolves, jackals and dogs : status survey and conservation action plan
The new Canid Action Plan synthesizes the current knowledge on the biology, ecology and status of all wild canid species, and outlines the conservation actions and projects needed to secure their…
The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
A comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals is presented, compiled by 1700+ experts, to suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems.
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups.
Molecular genetics of the most endangered canid: the Ethiopian wolf Canis simensis
The results suggest that hybridization has occurred between female Ethiopian wolves and male domestic dogs in one population, and recommend immediate captive breeding of Ethiopian wolves to protect their gene pool from dilution and further loss of genetic variability.
Low-coverage vaccination strategies for the conservation of endangered species
This study shows that vaccination used to enhance metapopulation persistence through elimination of the largest outbreaks of disease requires lower coverage than the conventional objective of reducing the reproduction number of an infectious agent to less than one.
The Cryptic African Wolf: Canis aureus lupaster Is Not a Golden Jackal and Is Not Endemic to Egypt
The Egyptian jackal is conclusively placed within the grey wolf species complex, together with the Holarctic wolf, the Indian wolf and the Himalayan wolf, and seems to represent an ancient wolf lineage which most likely colonized Africa prior to the northern hemisphere radiation.
Mitigating carnivore–livestock conflict in Europe: lessons from Slovakia

Abstract Conflicts with human interests have reappeared following recovery of large carnivores in Europe. Public acceptance is higher than historically but there is a need to identify effective,…

The timing of genetic divergence is addressed, and the pattern of mtDNA variation and geographical distribution indicate an initial population expansion, probably immediately after divergence from the wolf‐like ancestor, around 100 000 years ago.
Impact of livestock and settlement on the large mammalian wildlife of Bale Mountains National Park, southern Ethiopia
The biology and conservation of wild canids
This review discusses foxes, wolves, population genetics, management, management and conservation in the wild, as well as cases studies conducted at Isle Royale, Yellowstone, and other locations around the world.
