Effects of hunting group size, snow depth and age on the success of wolves hunting moose
To study factors important to the success of wolves, Canis lupus, hunting moose, Alces alces, we analysed data from more than 4000 km of snow tracking of wolves during 1998e2003 in Scandinavia. WeExpand
Cross-continental differences in patterns of predation: will naive moose in Scandinavia ever learn?
It is shown that hunting success of re-colonizing wolves on moose in Scandinavia was higher than reported in North America, and no evidence that moose expressed behavioural adjustments that lowered the HS of wolves in territories that had been occupied by wolves for up to 21 years is found. Expand
Biomass Flow and Scavengers Use of Carcasses after Re-Colonization of an Apex Predator
Wolves reduced the seasonal variation of biomass from moose carcasses and most important increased it during spring, which may lead to an increase in survival and/or reproductive success of scavengers within wolf territories. Expand
Genomic consequences of intensive inbreeding in an isolated wolf population
Whole-genome resequencing of 97 grey wolves from a highly inbred population reveals complete homozygosity of entire chromosomes in many individuals and characterizes the genomic consequences of intensive inbreeding. Expand
Comparing body condition of moose (Alces alces) selected by wolves (Canis lupus) and human hunters: consequences for the extent of compensatory mortality
Model selection analyses indicated that MMF levels were lower for wolf-killed moose compared with harvested moose, but an unbalanced sample design between years for the two causes of death (wolves and harvest) may have confounded a clear interpretation of the results. Expand
Movement pattern of red deer during drive hunts in Sweden
We investigated the movement pattern of GPS-collared red deer (Cervus elaphus) during drive hunts with loose dogs. In 46 flights of hinds (N = 9), the median flight distance was 2.5 km (rangeExpand
Response of Moose Hunters to Predation following Wolf Return in Sweden
It is shown that the re-colonization of wolves may result in an almost instant functional response by another large predator—humans—that reduced the potential for a direct numerical effect on the density of wolves’ main prey, the moose. Expand
Estimating wolf (Canis lupus) population size from number of packs and an individual based model
It is shown how total population size can be estimated from group counts by using an individual-based population model in a social living species, including the wolf, to model the full complexity of demographic traits of a social-living species such as the wolf. Expand
The Return of the Wolf – Effects on Prey , Competitors and Scavengers
Apex predators may have both direct and indirect effects on other species through predation and competition. I investigated the effects of wolves (Canis lupus) on prey species, competitors (includingExpand
Wolf predation on moose and roe deer: chase distances and outcome of encounters
We examined chase distances of gray wolves Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758 hunting moose Alces alces and roe deer Capreolus capreolus, and recorded details of encounters between wolves and prey on theExpand
