- Extrinsic Effects on Long-term Population Trends of Virginia Opossums and Striped Skunks at a Large Spatial Scale. Gehrt, Stanley D.; Hubert Jr., George F.; Ellis, Jack A. // American Midland Naturalist;Jan2006, Vol. 155 Issue 1, p168
Long-term data on wildlife populations are needed to elucidate the relative importance of extrinsic factors on population dynamics; however, such data are rare for most species such as medium-sized mammals. We present long-term population indices for Virginia opossums (Didelphis virginiana) and...
- Predicting carnivore occurrence with noninvasive surveys and occupancy modeling. Long, Robert A.; Donovan, Therese M.; MacKay, Paula; Zielinski, William J.; Buzas, Jeffrey S. // Landscape Ecology;Mar2011, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p327
Terrestrial carnivores typically have large home ranges and exist at low population densities, thus presenting challenges to wildlife researchers. We employed multiple, noninvasive survey methods-scat detection dogs, remote cameras, and hair snares-to collect detection-nondetection data for...
