Ancient canids of the Aleutian Islands (new archaeological discoveries from the Islands of Four Mountains)
Abstract We discuss the cultural roles of dog and red fox recovered from Carlisle Island, Islands of Four Mountains, Alaska, within the context of Aleutian ethnographic and zooarchaeological records.Expand
Biogeographic and anthropogenic correlates of Aleutian Islands plant diversity: A machine‐learning approach
TLDR
This study extends the equilibrium theory of island biogeography by including additional drivers of diversity during the Anthropocene, such as the landmass during the LGM, as well as factors that may be related to anthropogenic extinction rate. Expand
Mammal invaders on islands: impact, control and control impact
TLDR
It is difficult to predict the outcome of the removal of key species, such as a top predator, given the numerous and complex population interactions among island species, and justifies careful pre‐control study and preparation prior to initiating the eradication of an alien species, in order to avoid an ecological catastrophe.

Interspecific competition and the geographical distribution of red and arctic foxes Vulpes vulpes and Alopex lagopus
TLDR
The argument is extended to other pairs of similar canid species, with the conclusion that equivalent interactions between body size, secondary productivity and direct competition have general relevance to their geographical distributions. Expand

Abstract The arctic for Alopex lagopus was an important fur animal in Fennoscandia until the 1920s when numbers crashed, and in spite of total protection for over half a century has not recovered andExpand
