Culpeo fox (Pseudalopex culpaeus) and gray fox (Pseudalopex griseus) are heavily culled in Patagonia. Fox populations seem to persist thanks to spatial refuges from which hunted areas are repopulated, following a source–sink dynamics. Sustainable use of Patagonian foxes warrants the design of a monitoring program in nature reserves and areas subjected to(More)
The guanaco (Lama guanicoe (Müller, 1776)) is a monomorphic polygynous mammal whose adult sex ratio is expected to be balanced or biased towards females. Remarkably male-biased sex ratios of adult guanacos are often estimated from road surveys. We analyzed the distribution of guanaco social groups recorded during road surveys in Patagonia, Argentina, to(More)
Guanacos (Lama guanicoe) are thought to have declined in Patagonia mainly as a result of hunting and sheep ranching. Currently accepted estimates of total population size are extrapolated from densities obtained through strip transects in local studies. We used road surveys (8,141 km) and distance sampling to estimate guanaco density and population size(More)
