Interspecific Killing among Mammalian Carnivores
Interspecific killing among mammalian carnivores is common in nature and accounts for up to 68% of known mortalities in some species. Interactions may be symmetrical (both species kill each other) orExpand

Faecal genetic analysis to determine the presence and distribution of elusive carnivores: design and feasibility for the Iberian lynx
Noninvasive methods using genetic markers have been suggested as ways to overcome difficulties associated with documenting the presence of elusive species. We present and assess a novel, reliable andExpand

Spatial ecology of Iberian lynx and abundance of European rabbits in southwestern Spain
Spatial ecology and diet of Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) and the abundance of its main prey, the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), were studied in southwestern Spain from December 1992 toExpand

Comparison of 3 methods to estimate rabbit abundance in a Mediterranean environment
European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) are of special concern, for different reasons. They are prey of many predators in Mediterranean ecosystems, an important game species, and even a pest thatExpand

Feline Leukemia Virus and Other Pathogens as Important Threats to the Survival of the Critically Endangered Iberian Lynx (Lynx pardinus)
Background The Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) is considered the most endangered felid species in the world. In order to save this species, the Spanish authorities implemented a captive breeding programExpand

Effects of Matrix Heterogeneity on Animal Dispersal: From Individual Behavior to Metapopulation‐Level Parameters
Mounting theoretical and empirical evidence shows that matrix heterogeneity may have contrasting effects on metapopulation dynamics by contributing to patch isolation in nontrivial ways. We analyzeExpand

Niche relations among three sympatric Mediterranean carnivores
Abstract Previous studies carried out in the Doñana National Park reported that red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) were killed by Iberian lynxes (Lynx pardinus), whereas similar-sized Eurasian badgers (MelesExpand

Spatial Relationships Between Iberian Lynx and Other Carnivores in an Area of South-Western Spain
1. Spatial relationships between Iberian lynx and other carnivores were studied by radio-tracking and/or track censusing in two adjacent areas of Donana (south-western Spain). 2. Both radio-trackingExpand
