Resolving issues of imprecise and habitat-biased locations in ecological analyses using GPS telemetry data
Global positioning system (GPS) technologies collect unprecedented volumes of animal location data, providing ever greater insight into animal behaviour. Despite a certain degree of inherentExpand

Transcending scale dependence in identifying habitat with resource selection functions.
Multi-scale resource selection modeling is used to identify factors that limit species distributions across scales of space and time. This multi-scale nature of habitat suitability complicates theExpand

Endangered, apparently: the role of apparent competition in endangered species conservation
Conservation biologists have reported growing evidence of food-web interactions as causes of species endangerment. Apparent competition is an indirect interaction among prey species mediated by aExpand

Survival in the Rockies of an endangered hybrid swarm from diverged caribou (Rangifer tarandus) lineages
In North America, caribou (Rangifer tarandus) experienced diversification in separate refugia before the last glacial maximum. Geographical isolation produced the barren‐ground caribou (RangiferExpand

Caribou encounters with wolves increase near roads and trails: a time‐to‐event approach
Summary 1. Caribou and reindeer Rangifer tarandus are declining across North America and Scandinavia in part from wolf Canis lupus-mediated apparent competition with more abundant ungulate preyExpand

Combining resource selection and movement behavior to predict corridors for Canada lynx at their southern range periphery
Maintaining connectivity with source populations is especially important for populations of boreal species at the southern edge of their distributions, where anthropogenic disturbance and climateExpand

Effect of forest canopy on GPS-based movement data
Abstract The advancing role of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology in ecology has made studies of animal movement possible for larger and more vagile species. A simple field test revealed thatExpand

Seasonal Resource Selection of Canada Lynx in Managed Forests of the Northern Rocky Mountains
Abstract We investigated seasonal patterns in resource selection of Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) in the northern Rockies (western MT, USA) from 1998 to 2002 based on backtracking in winter (577 km;Expand

Preferred habitat and effective population size drive landscape genetic patterns in an endangered species
Landscape genetics provides a framework for pinpointing environmental features that determine the important exchange of migrants among populations. These studies usually test the significance ofExpand

Estimating ungulate recruitment and growth rates using age ratios
Trends in population growth can be monitored with data for key vital rates without knowledge of abundance. Although adult female survival has the highest elasticity for ungulate population dynamics,Expand
