Balancing sample accumulation and DNA degradation rates to optimize noninvasive genetic sampling of sympatric carnivores
Noninvasive genetic sampling, or noninvasive DNA sampling (NDS), can be an effective monitoring approach for elusive, wide‐ranging species at low densities. However, few studies have attempted toExpand

Finding a Fox: An Evaluation of Survey Methods to Estimate Abundance of a Small Desert Carnivore
The status of many carnivore species is a growing concern for wildlife agencies, conservation organizations, and the general public. Historically, kit foxes (Vulpes macrotis) were classified asExpand

Comparison of pulsar positions from timing and very long baseline astrometry
Pulsar positions can be measured with high precision using both pulsar timing methods and very long baseline interferometry (VLBI). Pulsar timing positions are referenced to a solar-system ephemeris,Expand
