A comparison and critique of different scat‐analysis methods for determining carnivore diet
It is concluded that the choice of method can have a significant impact on the results of dietary analysis, and can lead to very different conclusions about a species' ecology.
Leopard (Panthera pardus) status, distribution, and the research efforts across its range
It is found that while leopard research was increasing, research effort was primarily on the subspecies with the most remaining range whereas subspecies that are most in need of urgent attention were neglected.
Space and habitat use by resident and transient coyotes.
Comparisons of movements, habitat use, and survival between resident (breeders and pack associates) and transient coyotes on Fort Riley Military Reserva, Kansas show avoidance of resident coyotes by transient coyote may explain differences in space and habitat use by coyotes.

Abstract Habitat loss might be one of the primary reasons for the decline of the swift fox (Vulpes velox) in the western Great Plains of North America. From 1998 to 2001, we monitored 42 swift foxes…
Resource partitioning among cape foxes, bat‐eared foxes, and black‐backed jackals in South Africa
It is concluded that bat-eared foxes coexisted with jackals primarily by their dietary specialization and group living, and cape foxes by exhibiting high levels of spatial, habitat, temporal, and dietary partitioning.
A review of native and nonnative red foxes in North America
It is indicated that native red foxes are a boreal species that historically occurred in the northern regions of North America and in the southern refugia of montane habitats at higher elevations throughout the western United States.
Spatial relationships between swift foxes and coyotes in northwestern Texas
The authors' data indicated that spatial displacement of swift Foxes was not due to behavioral avoidance of coyotes but rather to increased killing of swift foxes within coyote core areas.
The diet, prey selection, and activity of dholes (Cuon alpinus) in northern Laos
In tropical forests of northern Laos, dholes focused predation on relatively few species during diurnal hours, suggesting the management of muntjac and sambar may be important for conserving dhole populations in the region.
Diet, Prey Selection, and Predation Impact of Black-Backed Jackals in South Africa
The results will help wildlife managers in Africa identify ungulate species susceptible to jackalpredation, and can be used to develop management strategies for reducing jackal predation in areas where it is problematic.
Seasonal diet and prey selection of black-backed jackals on a small-livestock farm in South Africa
The results showed that jackals selectively consumed different food items throughout the year and that wild prey were consistently selected over sheep, indicating sheep often were the main food resource for jackals.
