History of click-speaking populations of Africa inferred from mtDNA and Y chromosome genetic variation.
Little is known about the history of click-speaking populations in Africa. Prior genetic studies revealed that the click-speaking Hadza of eastern Africa are as distantly related to click speakers ofExpand

Serial SimCoal: A population genetics model for data from multiple populations and points in time
UNLABELLED We present Serial SimCoal, a program that models population genetic data from multiple time points, as with ancient DNA data. An extension of SIMCOAL, it also allows simultaneous modelingExpand

Why the Indian Subcontinent Holds the Key to Global Tiger Recovery
With only ∼3,000 wild individuals surviving restricted to just 7% of their historical range, tigers are now a globally threatened species. Therefore, conservation efforts must prioritize regions thatExpand

Evaluation of non-invasive genetic sampling methods for estimating tiger population size
Abstract There is often a conservation need to estimate population abundances of elusive, low-density, wide-ranging carnivore species. Because of logistical constraints, investigators often employExpand

Connectivity of Tiger (Panthera tigris) Populations in the Human-Influenced Forest Mosaic of Central India
Today, most wild tigers live in small, isolated Protected Areas within human dominated landscapes in the Indian subcontinent. Future survival of tigers depends on increasing local population size, asExpand

A panel of microsatellites to individually identify leopards and its application to leopard monitoring in human dominated landscapes
BackgroundLeopards are the most widely distributed of the large cats, ranging from Africa to the Russian Far East. Because of habitat fragmentation, high human population densities and the inherentExpand

Endozoochory by white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) across a suburban/woodland interface
Abstract We examined the role of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in the dispersal of viable seeds in an intact forest bordered by medium-density housing in southern Connecticut. EstimatedExpand
