Behavioural and sensory aspects of predation in -mustelids : studies on the sensory capabilities of the weasel, Mustela nivalis L. and the polecat, Mustela putorius L., with particular reference to predatory behaviour
TLDR
Polecats and weasels do not specialize in the use of a particular distance sense to locate potential prey, but are intermediate between strictly nocturnal and diurnal species, which is probably attributable to their predominately crepuscular activity pattern.
COYOTE RESPONSES TO VISUAL AND OLFACTORY STIMULI RELATED TO FAMILIARITY WITH AN AREA
TLDR
Overall, coyotes were more responsive to stimuli during exploration in unfamiliar than in familiar enclosures, and none of 38 coyotes that responded were neophobic toward the olfactory stimuli.
Coyote Investigative Behavior Following Removal of Novel Stimuli
TLDR
It is suggested that placing large novel objects over traps that are set and removing such objects after a few days, with the subsequent addition of an olfactory attractant, may increase exploratory behavior and capture of coyotes.

Use of visual and olfactory sensory cues by an apex predator in deciduous forests
TLDR
Two new approaches are proposed for quantifying the importance of predator-prey interactions in the evolution of prey-predator interactions and their implications for biodiversity conservation.
A complex relationship between moonlight and temperature on the foraging behavior of the Alabama beach mouse.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that temperature can reverse the effect of moonlight intensity on Alabama beach mouse GUD because changes in temperature change the ensemble of predators from homeothermic taxa with better vision than the mouse to ectothermictaxa with worse vision.

TLDR
The coyotes' scotopic visual threshold is exceeded by the natural illumination available under many nocturnal conditions and is discussed in relation to the ecology of the species.
Levels of Auditory Response in Fissiped Carnivores Ernest
TLDR
No clear-cut relation was found between the functionally based groupings and accepted mammalian classification, however, estimates of peripheral auditory function may be distorted by certain artifacts associated with recording CM from the membrana tympani secundaria and with the surgical procedures used.
Sound-Source Localization by the Red Fox
Vocalizations of prey species are sometimes pure-toned calls, which are more difficult to locate than multifrequency calls. Vertebrates do not locate all pure-toned sounds with the same accuracy. In
Behavioral Aspects of Predation
TLDR
Four hypotheses concerning mechanisms which might be of general importance in the behavior of predators are discussed: hunting by searching image, hunting by expectation, area-restricted search, and “niche” hunting.
Dynamics and the Tempro‐Spatial Relations of a Vertebrate Community
TLDR
This chapter discusses the seasonal development of a population of Diaptomus ashlandi Marsh, and related phytoplankton cycles in Lake Washington, and the manipulation and counting of river plankton and changes in some organisms due to formalin preservation.
