The continued growth of off-highway vehicle (OHV) activities – demonstrated by the dramatic increase  in OHV sales, number of users, and areas experiencing OHV use – has elevated concerns about their  ecological effects, the impacts on wildlife, and the sustainability of OHV use on secondary and tertiary road  networks. Conflicts between visitors and wildlife are raising concerns about system resiliency and sustainable  management. In order to quantify the spatial and temporal impacts of OHV… Expand

Ungulate Traffic Collisions in Europe
The expansion of highways and roads can fragment natural habitats and thus decrease the viability of ungulate subpopulations. It can also increase the number of vehicle collisions with wildlife.Expand
Effects of off-road recreation on mule deer and elk.
Off-road recreation is increasing rapidly in the United States, especially on public land (Havlick 2002, U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service 2004). An expansive network of roads providesExpand
Effects of Roads and Human Disturbance on Amur Tigers
Understanding the effects of human disturbance on endangered wildlife populations is critical to their conservation. We examined the effects of roads and human disturbance on the survivorship andExpand
Traffic mortality and the role of minor roads.
TLDR
It is argued that minor roads have a larger impact on wildlife with respect to habitat destruction, noise load and traffic mortality, and proposed a strategy based on the concept of a "traffic-calmed area", which creates opportunities for wildlife by decreasing limitations for animal movement.

The effects of traffic on the raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus) and other mammals in Japan
Abstract We investigated the extent of raccoon dog roadkills, and the factors influencing them, using data from the National Expressways in Japan for 1987–1998. A high rate of raccoon dog roadkillsExpand
ROADS AND THEIR MAJOR ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS
TLDR
Road density and network structure are informative landscape ecology assays and Australia has huge road-reserve networks of native vegetation, whereas the Dutch have tunnels and overpasses perforating road barriers to enhance ecological flows. Expand
Spatial patterns and factors influencing small vertebrate fauna road-kill aggregations
We examined the spatial patterns and factors influencing small terrestrial vertebrate road-kill aggregations in the Bow River Valley, Alberta, Canada. We surveyed roads varying in traffic volume,Expand
Roadless and Low-Traffic Areas as Conservation Targets in Europe
TLDR
It is proposed that the few remaining roadless and low-traffic areas in Europe should be an important focus of conservation efforts and be urgently inventoried, included more explicitly in the law and accounted for in transport and urban planning. Expand

Transportation infrastructure affects the structure of ecosystems, the dynamics of ecosystem function, and has direct effects on ecosystem components, including their species composition. Clearly,Expand
