Space use and multi-scale habitat selection of adult raccoons in Central Mississippi
Raccoons (Procyon lotor) are important furbearers and ecological generalists that exist in a variety of landscapes. Numerous studies have examined raccoon space and macrohabitat use, but information…
Survival and cause-specific mortality of adult raccoons in central Mississippi
The data suggest implementing a summer raccoon ting season with conservative bag limits will not reduce raccoon populations by reducing annual survival, and patterns of mortality varied between the summer hunting and control areas.
Evaluation of a Global Positioning System Backpack Transmitter for Wild Turkey Research
The results indicate that micro-GPS have the potential to provide increased reliable data on turkey movement ecology and habitat selection at a higher resolution than conventional VHF telemetric methods.
Regulation of space use in a solitary felid: population density or prey availability?
A MULTI-RESOLUTION ASSESSMENT OF RACCOON DEN SELECTION
Abstract Many studies have been conducted on the ecology of raccoons (Procyon lotor), while few have examined raccoon den-site selection, particularly in agricultural and prairie landscapes.…

Although transient coyotes are less likely to contribute reproductively to their population, transiency may be an important life history trait that facilitates metapopulation dynamics through dispersal and the eventual replacement of breeding residents lost to mortality.
Effects of Understory Vegetation Management on Brood Habitat for Northern Bobwhites
It is suggested that management directed toward improving forest condition for RCWs improves habitat quality for brooding bobwhites, and bobwhite chicks in the study area were less successful at capturing arthropods than were chicks in other studies in the southeastern United States.

Using georeferenced multilocus microsatellite genotypes in spatially implicit and spatially explicit models to characterize patterns of landscape genetic structure in river otters in Louisiana, it is likely that any genetic differentiation among subpopulations is exacerbated by relatively poor dispersal.
Space Use, Movements and Habitat Selection of Adult Bobcats (Lynx rufus) in Central Mississippi
It is suggested that ≤8 y-old pine (Pinus spp.) habitats are important to bobcats, particularly females, as these habitats were selected by females at all spatial scales, however, the data also indicate that mature (>30 y) pine habitats are Important on the study area.
Effects of anthropogenic mortality on Critically Endangered red wolf Canis rufus breeding pairs: implications for red wolf recovery

It is demonstrated that human-caused mortality, specifically by gunshots, had a strong negative effect on the longevity of red wolf pairs, which may benefit coyotes indirectly by removing their primary competitor.
