When generalists behave as specialists: local specialization by American badgers (Taxidea taxus)
This study provides additional evidence that badgers behave as specialists when burrowing rodents are highly concentrated and predictable over space and time.

It is argued that an important first step in understanding the basic ecology of these animals is to recognize the high degree of individual variation in landscape use.
Behavioral Model Systems
Some of the differences in species responses to fragmentation can be explained by differences in their behavioral systems, dispersal ability, life history, trophic level, sociality, and overall responses to changes in habitat size, connectivity, and type of matrix.
