Forecasting species distributions: Correlation does not equal causation
Identifying the mechanisms influencing species' distributions is critical for accurate climate change forecasts. However, current approaches are limited by correlative models that cannot distinguish
Abiotic stress and biotic factors mediate range dynamics on opposing edges
In the face of global change, understanding causes of range limits are one of the most pressing needs in biogeography and ecology. A prevailing hypothesis is that abiotic stress forms cold (upper
Temporal segregation among sympatric boreal predators
TLDR
The results suggest that temporal partitioning plays a smaller role in the coexistence of these predators than anticipated, while revealing some interesting trends and suggesting other factors that may play a role in their niche segregation.
Habitat selection and spatiotemporal interactions of a reintroduced mesocarnivore
Habitat quality and quantity are key factors in evaluating the potential for success of a wildlife translocation. However, because of the difficulty or cost of evaluating these factors, habitat
Interactive range‐limit theory (iRLT): An extension for predicting range shifts
TLDR
Current thinking on range limits is summarized and an integrative review to evaluate support for iRLT and trophic differences along range margins are performed, suggesting that range‐limit dynamics are more nuanced and interactive than classically predicted by RLT.

Diurnal Habitat Relationships of Canada Lynx in an Intensively Managed Private Forest Landscape in Northern Maine
Abstract In March 2000, Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) were listed as a federally threatened species in 14 states at the southern periphery of their range, where lynx habitat is disjunct and snowshoe
Spatial Ecology of a Canada Lynx Population in Northern Maine
Abstract Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) were listed as a federally threatened species in 14 states at the southern extent of their geographic range in March 2000, with Maine being the only state in
Effects of Precommercial Thinning on Snowshoe Hares in Maine
TLDR
Precommercial thinning was associated with densities of snowshoe hares that were approximately half of those in similar unthinned stands up to at least 11 years posttreatment; however, thinned stands may retain density of hares greater than stands managed using other forest harvesting regimes.
Winter Habitat Selection by Canada Lynx in Maine: Prey Abundance or Accessibility?
TLDR
Canada lynx selected stands that provided intermediate to high hare density and intermediate cover for hares but exhibited lower relative preference for stand types with highest hare densities where coniferous saplings exceeded 14,000 stems/ha.
NUMERICAL RESPONSE OF FISHERS TO SYNCHRONOUS PREY DYNAMICS
TLDR
Fisher populations appeared to have a delayed, positive numerical response with a lag of 2 years to changing lagomorph abundance, but they also appeared to switch to an unmeasured, alternate prey during the lagomorph low, suggesting that fishers are generalist predators that should have a stabilizing effect on the predator–prey system.
Female wolverine (Gulo gulo) reproduction: reproductive costs and winter food availability
TLDR
This study addresses how female wolverine (Gulo gulo (L., 1758)) reproduction is limited and tested two complementary hypotheses: (1) current reproduction is affected by the costs of reproduction in the preceding year and (2) current Reproduction isaffected by food availability in the current winter.
Geographical and Seasonal Variation in Food Habits and Prey Size of European Pine Martens
TLDR
The diet of pine martens varied significantly with latitude and longitude during winter, suggesting that winter is a period of limited food availability.
DIET OF FISHERS (MARTES PENNANTI) AT THE SOUTHERNMOST EXTENT OF THEIR RANGE
TLDR
The diet of fishers in the southern Sierra Nevada is characterized by analyzing the content of 201 feces collected either from trapped animals or from the rest sites of radio-collared animals, finding Mammals were the most frequent food item; however, unlike previous reports, reptiles and insects were major components of the diet.

Numerical responses of coyotes and lynx to the snowshoe hare cycle
TLDR
Experimental results suggest that predation is a necessary factor causing these cycles of cyclic fluctuation of hare populations in the southwest Yukon, and delayed numerical responses of both generalist coyotes and specialist lynx were similar, and would contribute to the cyclic dynamics.
