- Movement paths reveal scale-dependent habitat decisions by Canada lynx. FULLER, ANGELA K.; HARRISON, DANIEL J. // Journal of Mammalogy;Oct2010, Vol. 91 Issue 5, p1269
We documented the relative grain at which Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) perceive habitat heterogeneity using fractal dimension of foraging paths. We evaluated whether lynx expended greater foraging effort (i.e., greater fractal dimension of movement paths) in patches with the highest density of...
- Mapping potential core areas for lynx () using pellet counts from snowshoe hares () and satellite imagery. McCann, N.P.; Moen, R.A. // Canadian Journal of Zoology;Jun2011, Vol. 89 Issue 6, p509
We used location data from radio-collared Canada lynx ( Kerr, 1792), pellet-count data from snowshoe hares ( Erxleben, 1777), and cover-type data from satellite imagery to evaluate the relationship between the scale of habitat measurement and the potential for persistence of lynx in northeastern...
- Habitat preference of Canada lynx through a cycle in snowshoe hare abundance. Mowat, Garth; Slough, Brian // Canadian Journal of Zoology;Oct2003, Vol. 81 Issue 10, p1736
We assessed habitat preference of a lynx (Lynx canadensis) population through 8 years of a snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus) cycle. Seventy-four percent of our southern Yukon study area was approximately 30-year-old regenerating forest resulting from a large wildfire. The study area was not...
- Seasonal Effects of Habitat on Sources and Rates of Snowshoe Hare Predation in Alaskan Boreal Forests. Feierabend, Dashiell; Kielland, Knut // PLoS ONE;12/30/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 12, p1
Survival and predation of snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus) has been widely studied, yet there has been little quantification of the changes in vulnerability of hares to specific predators that may result from seasonal changes in vegetation and cover. We investigated survival and causes of...
- Ecological factors influencing the spatial pattern of Canada lynx relative to its southern range edge in Alberta, Canada. Bayne, Erin M.; Boutin, Stan; Moses, Richard A. // Canadian Journal of Zoology;Oct2008, Vol. 86 Issue 10, p1189
We examined the spatial pattern of Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis Kerr, 1792) relative to its southern range edge at the boreal plains - prairie ecotone in Alberta, Canada. Relative to the original distribution of boreal forest in our study area, lynx range seems to have contracted up to 22%. In...
- THE POPULATION TRAJECTORIES BOTH OF THE WILD RABBIT (ORYCTOLAGUS CUNICULUS) AND THE IBERIAN LYNX (LYNX PARDINUS) IN SPAIN: IMPLICATIONS FOR CONSERVATION. Lozano, Jorge; Cabezas-Diaz, Sara; Virgós, Emilio // Environmental Research Journal;2012, Vol. 6 Issue 2, p103
The Wild rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and the Iberian lynx (Lynx pardmus) are endemic species of the Iberian Peninsula. The Iberian lynx is a specialist predator, listed as critically endangered, and rabbit represents the bulk of its diet as well as of many other Iberian predators. The decline...
- `They've shot Miro.' Jackson, Peter; Henry, Philippe // International Wildlife;Nov92, Vol. 22 Issue 6, p38
Looks at the controversy over efforts to reintroduce the Eurasian lynx to the Jura Mountains and the Alps in Switzerland. The Eurasian lynx is known for hunting animals up to twice its size, and mainly at night, irking farmers. History; Disappearance; Reintroduction efforts; Habitat; Offspring.
- Lynx with the past in the Black Forest. Mustoe, James // New Scientist;3/20/93, Vol. 137 Issue 1865, p48
Reports on the debate over a recent proposal to reintroduce the European lynx to the Black Forest. Proposal from Luchs-Initiative Baden-Wurttemberg; Who backs the proposal; Critics of the plan.
- In December: Western New York is hopping with rabbits. Pyne, Lawrence // Field & Stream;Dec99, Vol. 104 Issue 8, p73
Focuses on the habitat for rabbits in Western New York.
