Mean and maximum longevity (i.e., age-at-death) in free-ranging American bison ( Bison bison ) subject to natural selection is difficult to estimate in the wild; hence, data on age-at-death for free-ranging populations is sparse. I used a 20-year time series of age-at-death data from 1909 bison to estimate mean longevity of hunter-killed bison in a growing population. I tested the following predictions: (a) mean longevity of hunted females was greater than males, (b) mean longevity for hunted… Expand

Reproductive success in wood bison (Bison bison athabascae) established using molecular techniques
TLDR
In this study, 21 microsatellite loci were used to establish the reproductive success of the wood bison population at Elk Island National Park, Alberta, Canada and only mass and prior success were useful in predicting male reproducing success. Expand
Variable age structure and apparent density dependence in survival of adult ungulates.
TLDR
Assessment of the response of adult survival to changes in density when age structure was and was not taken into account found survival rates were 10-15% higher during the prime-age stage than during the senescent stage for all sex-species combinations. Expand
INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES, LONGEVITY, AND REPRODUCTIVE SENESCENCE IN BIGHORN EWES
TLDR
Using long-term data on marked individuals from two populations of bighorn sheep, the existence of reproductive senescence and of trade-offs between longevity and early reproductive success in ewes were tested. Expand
Determinants of lifetime reproduction in female brown bears: early body mass, longevity, and hunting regulations.
TLDR
The effects of early development, population density, and human hunting on survival and lifetime reproductive success in brown bear (Ursus arctos) females, using a 25-year database of individually marked bears in two populations in Sweden are explored. Expand
Consequences of harvesting on age structure, sex ratio and population dynamics of red deer Cervus elaphus in central Norway
TLDR
In its present form the harvesting regime reduces the growth rate and biases the sex and age structure, but does not seem to threaten the population's viability and productivity. Expand
Dynamics of reintroduction in an indigenous large ungulate: the wood bison of northern Canada
TLDR
Differences in diet and overwinter survival of calves over the bison’s range suggest that intraspecific competition for food provided the stimulus for range expansion, and the reintroduction of animals into several independent sites in their historic range would facilitate recolonization and achieve a faster spread. Expand
Longevity and migration distance differ between wild and hand-reared mallards Anas platyrhynchos in Northern Europe
TLDR
This study provides a conservative test of the predictions addressed, calling for more research about the consequences of restocking duck populations by using historical national ringing–recovery data from Sweden and Finland. Expand

Extralimital movements are of interest to ecologists and wildlife managers alike because they can be used to understand the ecological process of range establishment and to determine if managementExpand
Comparing life expectancy of three deer species between captive and wild populations
TLDR
It is suggested that the mean life expectancy of captive populations relative to that of corresponding free-ranging populations is a reliable indicator to evaluate the husbandry success of a species in captivity. Expand
Is group size related to longevity in mammals?
TLDR
It was found that group size was a poor predictor of maximum longevity across all mammals, as well as within primates and rodents, and body mass was consistently the best predictor ofmaximum longevity. Expand
