  • A b s t r a c t. We compared different methods of monitoring an American mink, Mustela vison, population in an European mink, Mustela lutreola, area. The study was carried out in the Butron basin, northern Spain. We compared sign surveys and trapping in the same non-continuous 500 m sections of river. We also radio-tagged 10 minks to evaluate the efficiency of the two methods. There was no significant association between the presence of tracks and trapping success. We noticed the presence of… CONTINUE READING
