Food supplementation experiments with terrestrial vertebrates: patterns, problems, and the future
  • S. Boutin

  • 1 February 1990
TLDR
The typical population response to food supplementation was two- to three-fold increase in density, but no change in the pattern of population dynamics, which points to the need for researchers to conduct food supplementation experiments in tropical environments.
REVIEW: Wildlife camera trapping: a review and recommendations for linking surveys to ecological processes
TLDR
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 call for more explicit consideration of underlying processes of animal abundance, movement and detection by cameras, including more thorough reporting of methodological details and assumptions.
Impact of Food and Predation on the Snowshoe Hare Cycle
TLDR
Food and predation together had a more than additive effect, which suggests that a three-trophic-level interaction generates hare cycles.
Genetic and plastic responses of a northern mammal to climate change
TLDR
The timing of breeding in this population of squirrels in the southwest Yukon, Canada, has advanced as a result of both phenotypic changes within generations, and genetic changes among generations in response to a rapidly changing environment.
Avoidance of Industrial Development by Woodland Caribou
TLDR
Avoidance effects were highest during late winter and calving and lowest during summer, possibly as a result of lower traffic levels then, and management strategies to balance caribou conservation with resource extraction in northern Alberta are proposed.
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
The interaction between personality, offspring fitness and food abundance in North American red squirrels.
TLDR
The magnitude and direction of the effects changed among life history stages and years, possibly in association with food supply in some cases, and may indicate a role for balancing selection in the maintenance of personality.
Impacts of Chronic Anthropogenic Noise from Energy‐Sector Activity on Abundance of Songbirds in the Boreal Forest
TLDR
Noise mitigation is a cost-effective best-management practice that might help conserve high-quality habitat for boreal birds and help mitigate existing noise impacts on birds.
What Drives the 10-year Cycle of Snowshoe Hares?
TLDR
The spectacular cycles of snowshoe hares and their predators have captured the attention of biologists as well as historians, and the challenge to biologists has been to understand the mechanisms behind these cycles, which has not been easy.
