—Estimates of abundance commonly are used for assessing quality of wildlife habitat. However, disparities between abundance and fitness parameters make the utility of abundance for predicting quality of habitat questionable. We used survival of rodents and rates of capture to assess quality of habitat in greasewood scrub and sandhill prairie habitats at the(More)
Meadow jumping mice (Zapus hudsonius) reduce their metabolism substantially during hibernation and use stored fat reserves for overwinter energy needs. Preble's meadow jumping mouse (Z. h. preblei; PMJM) occurs along the Front Range of Colorado, north into southeastern Wyoming, and is listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act because(More)
In western United States, both mine reclamations and renewed mining at previously abandoned mines have increased substantially in the last decade. This increased activity may adversely impact bats that use these mines for roosting. Townsend's big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii) is a species of conservation concern that may be impacted by ongoing mine(More)
The Preble's meadow jumping mouse (Zapus hudsonius preblei [PMJM]) is a rare rodent of southeastern Wyoming and central Colorado that has been the center of debates regarding subspecies' genetic identity and the application of the Endangered Species Act. I analyzed a 7-year PMJM mark–recapture data set using a temporal symmetry model (Pradel model) to(More)
—An understanding of species' habitat requirements is needed for effective land management decisions, but for many North American reptiles, habitat use information is lacking. Gambelia wislizenii (Long-nosed Leopard Lizard) is a predatory lizard of most North American deserts, and, although common in the interior of its range, appears to be declining at(More)
The longnose leopard lizard is one of the largest lizards found in the major desert systems of North America. It inhabits xeric shrublands from eastern Oregon to western Colorado and from southern Idaho to northern Mexico. Studies of longnose leopard lizard movement and microhabitat use have found lizards utilize several ha of sparsely-covered shrubs with(More)

Probability and statistics play a central role in decision-making processes in everyday life. They are also effective means of reinforcing mathematical methods. Therefore, teaching of probability and statistics is generally included in many k-12 school curricula, e. Mathematics of probability permits us to make predictions for random events and for cases(More)
