Detectability, philopatry, and the distribution of dispersal distances in vertebrates.
Dispersal is of central importance to population biology, behavioral ecology and conservation. However, because field studies are based on finite study areas, nearly all dispersal distributions forExpand

Social Mating System and Sex-Biased Dispersal in Mammals and Birds: A Phylogenetic Analysis
The hypothesis that patterns of sex-biased dispersal are related to social mating system in mammals and birds has gained widespread acceptance over the past 30 years. However, two major complicationsExpand

Effects of urbanization on carnivore species distribution and richness
Abstract Urban development can have multiple effects on mammalian carnivore communities. We conducted a meta-analysis of 7,929 photographs from 217 localities in 11 camera-trap studies across coastalExpand

Prevalence of and associated risk factors for shedding Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts and Giardia cysts within feral pig populations in California.
Populations of feral pigs (Sus scrofa) may serve as an environmental reservoir of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts and Giardia sp. cysts for source water. We conducted a cross-sectional study toExpand

The Ecology and Macroecology of Mammalian Home Range Area
Although many studies employ allometric relationships to demonstrate possible dependence of various traits on body mass, the relationship between home range size and body mass has been perhaps theExpand

Influence of population density and climate on the demography of subalpine golden-mantled ground squirrels
Abstract Temporal fluctuation in abundance is common in many wildlife populations, but the causes and consequences to population dynamics of these fluctuations remain poorly understood. We usedExpand

Genetic differentiation of island spotted skunks, Spilogale gracilis amphiala
Abstract The island spotted skunk (Spilogale gracilis amphiala) is endemic to the 2 largest California Channel Islands, Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa. Unlike the island fox (Urocyon littoralis) andExpand

Home Range and Parasite Diversity in Mammals
Parasite diversity among and within host species is not solely the result of random processes; rather, it depends on a suite of physiological or ecological host traits as well as environmentalExpand
