Abstract We radio-collared a total of 29 lynx in the Swiss Jura Mountains and collected data on demography during 1988-1998. We were able to observe 10 2-14 year-old females for 32 female years. Lynx kittens were born between 12 May and 13 June (26 May ± 9 days). One female gave birth to a litter on 26 August after she had lost her first litter born in May. The average litter size was 2.00 ± 0.75 kittens (range: 1-3). The sex ratio of 1.67 females:1 male did not differ significantly from the… 

Spatial and Social stability of a Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx population: an assessment of 10 years of observation in the Jura Mountains

Abstract A total of 18 Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx were radio-tagged between March 1988 and June 1998 in the Swiss Jura Mountains, and during 1995-1997 eight animals were radio-tagged on the French side

Demography of a Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) population within a strictly protected area in Central Europe

TLDR
This first open population SCR study on lynx provides sex-specific demographic parameters that are fundamental information for lynx management in the study area as well as in similar contexts Europe-wide.

Status assessment of Eurasian lynx in Latvia linking genetics and demography—a growing population or a source–sink process?

TLDR
Evidence from this study shows that the population is not only stable but also likely growing and that there currently appear to be no barriers preventing gene flow, and that the lynx population was sustainably maintained.

Patterns of variation in reproductive parameters in Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx)

TLDR
The lack of differences in litter sizes among age classes is at odds with most findings in large mammals, and it is argued that this is because the level of prenatal investment is relatively low in felids compared to their substantial levels of postnatal care.

Spatial and temporal variation in natal dispersal by Eurasian lynx in Scandinavia

TLDR
This study showed that dispersal patterns by lynx in Scandinavia were male biased, with male lynx dispersing farther and more frequently than female lynx and females lynx often settling near their natal areas.

The combination of intensive persecution, habitat loss and prey deficiency led to the extinction of Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in the Dinaric Mountains at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1973,

Conservation of the lynx Lynx lynx in the Swiss Jura Mountains

Abstract Lynx Lynx lynx returned to a semi-natural, human dominated landscape in the Jura Mountains in France and Switzerland after reintroductions in the early 1970s. Controversy has resulted from

Eurasian lynx density and habitat use in one of Europe's strongholds, the Romanian Carpathians

The Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) faces population declines in the western part of its range, and its ecological requirements are poorly understood in the eastern part of its range. The Romanian

Eurasian lynx fitness shows little variation across Scandinavian human-dominated landscapes

TLDR
The results suggest that lynx population dynamics in human-dominated landscapes may be mainly driven by human impacts on survival, with evidence that food availability was a key factor influencing female fitness.
