Selective harvesting and habitat loss produce long-term life history changes in a mouflon population.
We examined the long-term effects (28 years) of habitat loss and phenotype-based selective harvest on body mass, horn size, and horn shape of mouflon (Ovis gmelini musimon) in southern France. ThisExpand

Low genotyping error rates in wild ungulate faeces sampled in winter
We show that Alpine ibex (Capra ibex) and Corsican mouflon (Ovis musimon) faeces yield useful DNA for microsatellite analysis, however, we detected higher genotyping error rates for spring faecesExpand

Transmission of a pestivirus infection in a population of Pyrenean chamois.
Outbreaks of a previously unrecorded disease have recently affected Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica pyrenaica) populations across the mountain range. A pestivirus was hypothesized to be theExpand

Population abundance and early spring conditions determine variation in body mass of juvenile chamois
Abstract For species living in seasonal environments the understanding of demographic processes requires identifying the environmental factors during spring and summer that shape phenotypicExpand

Reproductive output of female mouflon (Ovis gmelini musimon×Ovis sp.): a comparative analysis
Although many mouflon Ovis gmelini musimon populations have been introduced to continental southern and central Europe, little is known about their reproductive output. Based on post-mortem analysisExpand

Sex-specific Growth in Alpine Chamois
Abstract Studying between-sex differences in body growth has strong implications for understanding life-history tactics of animals. We used age and carcass mass data from 2,312 female and 2,622 maleExpand

Impacts of tourism and hunting on a large herbivore’s spatio-temporal behavior in and around a French protected area
Abstract Human disturbance is of growing concern owing to the increase of human activities in natural areas. Animal responses are manifold (immediate and/or delayed, short and/or long-lasting, withExpand

Determinants of seasonal variation in activity patterns of mouflon
Balancing energetic requirements is a complex process governed by the current condition of the animal, its physiological state, and by the local environment. In response to these factors, animals areExpand

Sex-specific adjustments in habitat selection contribute to buffer mouflon against summer conditions
In the context of global warming, investigating how animals buffer against the hottest conditions is a crucial issue. We focused on habitat selection in a French Mediterranean mouflon populationExpand

Coupling scale-specific habitat selection and activity reveals sex-specific food/cover trade-offs in a large herbivore
The balance between food and perceived predation risk has been revealed as one of the primary drivers of animal habitat selection. However, few studies have investigated how spatiotemporal scales andExpand
