Placing linkages among fragmented habitats: do least‐cost models reflect how animals use landscapes?
TLDR
We examine trends in published LCP analyses, demonstrate the implications of methodological choices with our own LCP analysis for bighorn sheep Ovis nelsoni, and point to future directions in cost modelling. Expand

Applying resource selection functions at multiple scales to prioritize habitat use by the endangered Cross River gorilla
Aim The critically endangered Cross River gorilla is a patchily distributed taxon for which habitat selection has been modelled only at coarse spatial scales, using remotely sensed landscape dataExpand

A Novel Food Processing Technique by a Wild Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei)
Innovation, the invention of new behavior, has been observed in wild primates only infrequently. The processing of thistle (Cardus nyassanus) has previously been described as being one of the mostExpand

Subpopulation range estimation for conservation planning: a case study of the critically endangered Cross River gorilla
TLDR
We explore the effect of model choice on resulting subpopulation range estimation for the critically endangered and patchily distributed Cross River gorilla, and evaluates the conservation conclusions that can be drawn from each model. Expand

Black-backed woodpecker occupancy in burned and beetle-killed forests: Disturbance agent matters
Abstract In the western United States, the black-backed woodpecker (Picoides arcticus) is a “snag specialist”, found predominantly in burned montane forests. While fire is a key disturbance agent inExpand

Resource selection by GPS-tagged California spotted owls in mixed-ownership forests
Abstract The relative contribution of private and public forest to the conservation of species in mixed-ownership landscapes has often been contentious because management goals vary among owners.Expand

Patterns of woodboring beetle activity following fires and bark beetle outbreaks in montane forests of California, USA
BackgroundIncreasingly frequent and severe drought in the western United States has contributed to more frequent and severe wildfires, longer fire seasons, and more frequent bark beetle outbreaksExpand

Chapter 9 - Woodboring beetle colonization of conifers killed by fire and bark beetles: implications for forest restoration and black-backed woodpecker conservation
W oodboring beetles (Cerambycidae and Buprestidae) are common in coniferous forests of the Western United States, where they are considered secondary forest pests because they generally colonizeExpand
Using metapopulation models to assess species conservation–ecosystem restoration trade-offs
Abstract Ecological restoration is needed to counter global-scale ecosystem degradation, but can conflict with endangered species conservation when restoration impacts habitat quality. In such cases,Expand
