Finding the best location for installing of wildlife signs using kernel density estimation in Khojir National Park

TLDR
Finding an area for installing wildlife, the designing of warning signs, and other precautions such as wildlife crossings and overpass creation are useful in decreasing wildlife accidents.

SPATIOTEMPORAL ANALYSIS FOR WILDLIFE-VEHICLE-COLLISIONS BASED ON ACCIDENT STATISTICS OF THE COUNTY STRAUBING-BOGEN IN LOWER BAVARIA

Abstract. During the last years the numbers of wildlife-vehicle-collisions (WVC) in Bavaria increased considerably. Despite the statistical registration of WVC and preventive measures at areas of

Effective Placement of Road Mitigation Using Lessons Learned from Turtle Crossing Signs in Ontario

TLDR
The placement of turtle crossing signs is used as a case study to provide recommendations for informed placement of mitigation structures across regional landscapes in Ontario and elsewhere and to accurately inventory where structures are located and monitor their effectiveness.

Do Crash Barriers and Fences Have an Impact on Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions? - An Artificial Intelligence and GIS-Based Analysis

TLDR
The preliminary results indicate that the combination of artificial intelligence and GIS may be used to analyze and better allocate protective barriers or to apply it in alternative measures, such as dynamic WVC risk-warning.

Strategically Locating Wildlife Crossing Structures for Florida Panthers Using Maximal Covering Approaches

TLDR
Two approaches for using the maximal covering location problem (MCLP) to determine optimal sites to install new wildlife crossing structures for endangered Florida panthers demonstrate how the MCLP can serve as a useful conservation planning tool when traffic mortality or animal tracking data are available to researchers.

Deer Crossing Road Detection With Roadside LiDAR Sensor

TLDR
An innovative approach to detecting deer crossing at highways using 3D light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology and it is shown that the developed method can detect the deer with an average distance of 30 m far away from the LiDAR.

The Influence of Landscape Structure on Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions: Geostatistical Analysis on Hot Spot and Habitat Proximity Relations

Vehicle collisions with animals pose serious issues in countries with well-developed highway networks. Both expanding wildlife populations and the development of urbanised areas reduce the potential

Evaluating Wildlife–Vehicle Collision Hotspots Using Kernel-Based Estimation: a Focus on the Endangered Asiatic Cheetah in Central Iran

The transportation networks within and adjacent to protected areas degrade natural habitats and contribute to a higher risk of mortality through roadkill. Following years of unplanned and

Predicting locations of moose–vehicle collisions in Sweden

Summary 1. Animal‐vehicle collisions are a serious problem for road planners and biologists concerned with traffic safety, species conservation and animal welfare. In Sweden, vehicle collisions with

Landscape influences on deer-vehicle accident areas in an Urban environment

TLDR
It is suggested that community officials consider using the potential for DVA as justification for proactive population and habitat management programs to maintain deer populations at levels that minimize deer-human conflicts.

Deer-Vehicle Collisions: Nationwide Status of State Monitoring Activities and Efforts

We distributed questionnaires to 50 state natural resource agencies in October 1992 to request estimates of deer killed annually on highways, the source of the estimates, and information about

Effectiveness of a Lighted, Animated Deer Crossing Sign

TLDR
Two lighted, animated deer crossing signs were installed adjacent to State Highway 82 south of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, delineating a 1.61 km (1-mile) segment of highway where deer-vehicle accidents frequently occurred, and their response in the form of speed reduction and/or increased awareness was not sufficient to affect the crossings per kill ratio.

I studied trends and the spatial variation in ungulate-vehicle collisions (UVC) in Sweden varying the spatial resolution in order to test the hypothesis that UVC are proportional to animal density

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.

The follow up study at Pernaja has continued now for nearly three years. The follow up research has been started before the road was built, it continued during the construction period 1995 -1998. The

Methods to Reduce Traffic Crashes Involving Deer: What Works and What Does Not

TLDR
The only widely accepted method with solid evidence of effectiveness is well-designed and maintained fencing, combined with underpasses or overpasses as appropriate, and herd reduction is controversial but can be effective.
