Interspecific killing among mammalian carnivores is common in nature and accounts for up to 68% of known mortalities in some species. Interactions may be symmetrical (both species kill each other) or asymmetrical (one species kills the other), and in some interactions adults of one species kill young but not adults of the other. There is a positive significant relationship between the body masses of solitary killer species and body masses of their victim species, and grouping species kill… Expand
Diet, Morphology, and Interspecific Killing in Carnivora
TLDR
It is concluded that although resource exploitation (diet), predatory habits, and taxonomy are influential in predisposing carnivores to attack each other, relative body size of the participants is overwhelmingly important. Expand
Eternal enemies, or incidental encounters? Structure and patterns of interspecific killing in Carnivora
TLDR
In this study, previous understanding of the broad-scale dynamics interspecific killing in Carnivora was suggested to be incomplete in scope, and a positive effect of relative body size between killer species and killed species on the likelihood of forming a killing interaction is found. Expand

Mammalian carnivore populations are often intensively managed, either because the carnivore in question is endangered, or because it is viewed as a pest and is subjected to control measures, or both.Expand
Interspecific competition and predation in American carnivore families
TLDR
Quantitative analyses suggest that several facets of carnivore niche occupation and morphology have evolved in response to intraguild pressures. Expand
The potential for interspecific competition among African carnivores
TLDR
Analysis of the potential for interspecific competition across carnivores on one continent, Africa, by calculating the number of other carnivore species that overlapped it in geographic range, habitat, and diet indicates that exploitative competition and interspecific killing are of potential widespread importance for a large number of carnivores in Africa.

Association between taxonomic relatedness and interspecific mortality in captive ungulates
TLDR
It is recommended that closely related species should not be put together in mixed species exhibits to prevent serious injuries or fatal attacks in captive African ungulates. Expand
Using DNA to describe and quantify interspecific killing of fishers in California
TLDR
Bobcats killed only female fishers, whereas mountain lions more frequently killed male than female fisher’s, confirming the hypothesis thatFemale fishers would suffer lethal attacks by smaller predators than would male fishers. Expand
Interspecific Aggressions between Crested Porcupines and Roe Deer
Simple Summary Behavioral interspecific interference species is well-documented only amongst carnivore mammals, whereas being rare for ungulates and rodents. We report data on interactions betweenExpand
The Ubiquity of Intraguild Predation among Predatory Arthropods
TLDR
This study uses molecular analyses of gut contents to assess the nature and incidence of IGP among four species of coccinellid predators in soybean fields and represents the most convincing field evidence of a high prevalence of I GP among predatory arthropods. Expand
Intraguild Predation and Interspecific Killing as Structuring Forces of Carnivoran Communities in South America
TLDR
The results indicate jaguars, pumas, and ocelots as the species most likely to have significant impact on the guild and IGP and IK are not random and reflect widespread interactions that influence carnivoran community structure in South America. Expand

Six ecological factors that may limit African wild dogs, Lycaon pictus
TLDR
It is shown that all wild dog populations have a genetically effective size less than 500, so gene flow is necessary to maintain genetic diversity within populations, and Mitochondrial DNA genotypes revealed clinal variation between Selous and distant populations. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that weasel differ in their degree of specialization on mouse-sized food, larger weasels taking a greater size variety, which is possibly a coexistence-stabilizing force. Expand

TLDR
This chapter briefly review selected hypotheses for the evolution and maintenance of grouping in carnivores, focusing on those that are broadly applicable across the order and are testable from the available comparative data. Expand

TLDR
The purpose is to document the ubiquity and importance of intraguild predation and to establish a theoretical framework for its analysis, which is the first synthesis of IGP into a general work. Expand

TLDR
One of the purposes is to establish a theoretical framework for the organization and interpretation of the numerous observations of intraspecific predation. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that kleptoparasitism by spotted hyenas would have placed a major constraint on the ability of individual wild dog packs to recover from episodic disasters. Expand

TLDR
The study of intraguild predation will lead to a reconsideration of many classical topics, such as niche shifts, species exclusion and cascading interactions in food webs. Expand
Coyote coexistence with wolves on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska
TLDR
Lack of or minimal exploitation competition appears to allow coexistence of wolves and coyotes, while interference competition is believed to account for the difference in canid abundance near the two road types. Expand
