Presence of humans and domestic animal species are a common threat to wildlife in protected areas. Wildlife habitat has a particularly strong human presence in the Mediterranean Basin where human population density is high. However, relatively little is known on the interaction and impact of humans on wildlife in much of the Mediterranean region. In this study, we recorded the interactions among several important wildlife species, humans, and domestic animals in a forested Mediterranean…

Feral Animal Populations: Separating Threats from Opportunities

Feral animals are those that live in the wild but are descendants of domesticated populations. Although, in many cases, these feral populations imply a demonstrable risk to the ecosystems in which

The Effects of Dogs on Wildlife Communities

TLDR
The effects of dogs on wildlife communities are studied by comparing the activity levels of wildlife in areas that prohibited dogs with areas that allowed dogs, and the presence of dogs along recreational trails correlated with altered patterns of habitat utilization by several species.

TLDR
Wildlife-dog interactions are reviewed and a case study is provided that focuses on interactions documented from research in Mongolia to underscore the need for studies designed to best determine how dogs affect native wildlife and especially imperiled populations.

Abstract. Feral domestic dogs are efficient wild ungulate hunters in many parts of the world. This has not been confirmed in Mediterranean ecosystems. However, if feral dogs can predate upon wild

Assessing caracal-prey interactions by spatial and temporal analyses

TLDR
The results of this study do not support a caracal diet based mainly on wild goat, due to their mostly spatial and partially temporal segregation, and other smaller prey species such as brown hare, rodents and chukar partridge can serve as better prey options.

TLDR
Results indicate that at any given time or place caracal take a wide range of prey species but concentrate on those that are most abundant, and are thus generalist feeders.
