Food supplementation experiments with terrestrial vertebrates: patterns, problems, and the future
- S. Boutin
- 1 February 1990
I reviewed 138 cases in which terrestrial vertebrates received supplemental food under field conditions. These cases are strongly biased toward small-bodied herbivores in north temperate… Expand
REVIEW: Wildlife camera trapping: a review and recommendations for linking surveys to ecological processes
We reviewed 266 CT studies published between 2008 and 2013, evaluating the consistency of CT protocols and sampling designs, the extent to which CT surveys considered sampling error, and the linkages between analytical assumptions and species ecology. Expand
Impact of Food and Predation on the Snowshoe Hare Cycle
Snowshoe hare populations in the boreal forests of North America go through 10-year cycles. Supplemental food and mammalian predator abundance were manipulated in a factorial design on… Expand

Climate change is predicted to be most severe in northern regions and there has been much interest in to what extent organisms can cope with these changes through phenotypic plasticity or… Expand
Avoidance of Industrial Development by Woodland Caribou
Rapid encroachment on woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) habitat by resource extraction industries (oil, gas, forestry, and peat) is occurring throughout northern Alberta, Canada. The… Expand

This paper reviewed the provincial, territorial, and state guidelines for the retention of treed riparian buffers after timber harvest in Canada and the United States. Comparisons amongst… Expand
The interaction between personality, offspring fitness and food abundance in North American red squirrels.
Animal personality is now frequently reported in wild and captive populations. It has been shown to be moderately heritable and to have potentially important fitness consequences. Variation in… Expand
What Drives the 10-year Cycle of Snowshoe Hares?
n 1831 the manager of a Hudson’s Bay Company post in northern Ontario wrote to the head office in London. The local Ojibway Indians were starving, he reported, because of a scarcity of “rabbits,” and… Expand
Impacts of chronic anthropogenic noise from energy-sector activity on abundance of songbirds in the boreal forest.

- 1 October 2008
The effects of human activities in forests are often examined in the context of habitat conversion. Changes in habitat structure and composition are also associated with increases in the activity of… Expand
SPATIAL SEPARATION OF CARIBOU FROM MOOSE AND ITS RELATION TO PREDATION BY WOLVES
Abstract In northeastern Alberta, Canada, continued expansion of the oil and gas industry along with timber harvesting has raised concerns that the resulting environmental changes may negatively… Expand
