Wildlife-Vehicle Collision Reduction Study: Report to Congress
Americ’s highways allow people and products to travel to every corner of our nation. Along the way, these roads cross through the habitat of many native wildlife species. When these paths intersect,
Reproduction and Survival of Yellowstone Bison
TLDR
Simulations suggested brucellosis eradication via vaccination would result in increased birth rates and a 29% increase in population growth in Yellowstone National Park, possibly leading to more bison movements outside the park.
Animal–Vehicle Collision Data Collection
TLDR
The primary obstacles to improving AVC and AC data collection and analysis were determined to be a lack of a demonstrated need, underreporting, poor data quality, and delays in data entry.
Habitat assessment of small mammals in the Umvoti Vlei Conservancy, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
TLDR
Stomach content analysis revealed that R. pumilio was primarily granivorous whereas the multimammate mouse Mastomys natalensis preferred green plant foods, and green plants contributed less to the diets of these species during winter when seed intake was increased.
Animal-Vehicle Collision Data Collection Throughout the United States and Canada
Animal-vehicle collisions affect human safety, property and wildlife, and the number of animal-vehicle collisions has substantially increased across much of North America over the last decades.
Emigration and Density Dependence in Yellowstone Bison
Abstract Understanding the relative importance of density-dependent and density-independent feedback on population growth is essential for developing management strategies to conserve wildlife. We
Evaluation of Wildlife Crossing Structures and Fencing on US Highway 93 Evaro to Polson Phase I: Preconstruction Data Collection and Finalization of Evaluation Plan
The US 93 reconstruction project on the Flathead Indian Reservation in northwest Montana represents one of the most extensive wildlife-sensitive highway design efforts to occur in the continental
Initial effects of reintroduced wolves Canis lupus on bighorn sheep Ovis canadensis dynamics in Yellowstone National Park
TLDR
The presence of wolves did not prevent the bighorn sheep population from increasing slowly during the decade following reintroduction, but sheep counts remain low compared to the 487 sheep observed before an outbreak of keratoconjunctivitis caused 60% mortality during 1982, suggesting that other factors limited the recovery of this relatively isolated, high-elevation, native sheep population.
