Impact of rewilding, species introductions and climate change on the structure and function of the Yukon boreal forest ecosystem
TLDR
Community and ecosystem changes are happening in the pristine boreal forest ecosystem of the Yukon for 2 reasons: climate change is affecting the abiotic environment and driving changes in plant productivity and predator–prey interactions and mammal species reintroductions and rewilding.
Individual-based seasonal habitat selection in a forest-dwelling population of reintroduced bison Bison bison
Mapping habitat selection by threatened species provides critical information for conservation planning. For reintroduced populations, understanding habitat selection is also necessary to predict
Effects of linear features on resource selection and movement rates of wood bison (Bison bison athabascae)
TLDR
In boreal forests of western Canada, linear features (LFs; e.g., pipeli... can affect native biota beyond simple habitat loss.
Longevity in a hunted population of reintroduced American bison (Bison bison)
TLDR
A 20-year time series of age-at-death data from 1909 bison is used to estimate mean longevity of hunter-killed bison in a growing population, and longevity increased slightly for females, but not males, with an increase in abundance.
Seasonal and inter-annual variation in diet for gray wolves Canis lupus in Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan
TLDR
Overall, bison constitute a lower proportion of wolf diet compared to other wild ungulates, and the assumption that wolf predation is not the main contributing factor to SRPB population decline is supported.
Boreal forest titans do not clash: low overlap in winter habitat selection by moose (Alces americanus) and reintroduced bison (Bison bison)
Despite moose (Alces americanus) likely being both an ecological and cultural keystone species in the North American boreal forest, few studies have examined niche overlap between moose and other

Descriptions of Wolf Attacks on Bison Calves in Wood Buffalo National Park
Wolf predation on bison in Wood Buffalo Park and adjacent areas in late spring/early summer season was observed to be directed toward cow/calf herds. While hunting, wolf packs in early summer
Responses of bison on their calving grounds to predation by wolves in Wood Buffalo National Park
Bison-wolf interactions were observed from a tower located in the centre of a meadow in Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta, Canada, from 10 May to 9 September 1980. Special attention was directed to
Bison (Bison bison) Fur Used As Drey Material by Red Squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus): An Indication of Ecological Restoration
TLDR
The influence of sex and body size on food habits of a giant tropical snake, Python reticulatus, and its distribution, abundance, and habitat associations in Washington State are studied.
The ecological future of the North American bison: conceiving long-term, large-scale conservation of wildlife.
TLDR
5 attributes of a recent range-wide vision-setting exercise for ecological recovery of the North American bison (Bison bison) that are broadly applicable to other species and restoration targets are highlighted.
Experimental reduction of wolves in the Yukon: Ungulate responses and management implications
TLDR
It is concluded that natural precation is the main force maintaining low abundance of moose, and that maximum harvest rates should be set conservatively at 2% for caribou and 5% for moose.
Scavenging on European bison carcasses in Bialowieza Primeval Forest (eastern Poland)
TLDR
Ravens and white-tailed eagles were observed significantly more often at carcasses placed in clearings than at those exposed in the forest, and the opposite was recorded for raccoon dogs.

KILL RATES AND PREDATION BY WOLVES ON UNGULATE POPULATIONS IN BIAŁOWIEŻA PRIMEVAL FOREST (POLAND)
TLDR
Wolves limited deer numbers but did not regulate prey population, and wolf predation alone is a poor predictor of deer population dynamics, because deer are also subject to lynx (Lynx lynx) predation and hunting harvest.
THE EFFECT OF PREY AND PREDATOR DENSITIES ON WOLF PREDATION
TLDR
The ratio-dependent-prey-dependent controversy may dissipate with greater appreciation and acknowledgment that both models may be overly simplistic, both have value, and neither deserves primacy.
