The Animal Landscape and Man Simulation System (ALMaSS): a history, design, and philosophy.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Research Ideas & Outcome Journal. 7/7/2022, p1-8. 8p.

Abstract: This article is the first article in the new topical RIO journal collection for ALMaSS. This editorial introduces ALMaSS, its history, component parts and philosophy, and forms a first access point for those interested in knowing more. It is written fr...

Our Wild Companions: Domestic cats in the Anthropocene.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Trends in ecology & evolution [Trends Ecol Evol] 2020 Jun; Vol. 35 (6), pp. 477-483. Date of Electronic Publication: 2020 Feb 22.

Abstract: Cats share a long history with humans but are remarkable among domesticated species in largely retaining behavioural and reproductive independence from people. In many societies, the cat maintains liminal status as both a domestic and a wild animal. An...

Are several small wildlife crossing structures better than a single large? Arguments from the perspective of large wildlife conservation.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Nature Conservation-Bulgaria. 2022, Issue 47, p197-213. 17p.

Abstract: Crossing structures for large wildlife are increasingly being constructed at major roads and railways in many countries and current guidelines for wildlife mitigation at linear infrastructures tend to advocate for large crossing structures sited at maj...

Partial COVID-19 closure of a national park reveals negative influence of low-impact recreation on wildlife spatiotemporal ecology.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Scientific Reports. 1/13/2023, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p1-11. 11p.

Abstract: Human presence exerts complex effects on the ecology of species, which has implications for biodiversity persistence in protected areas experiencing increasing human recreation levels. However, the difficulty of separating the effect on species of huma...

Evaluating risks associated with capture and handling of mule deer for individual‐based, long‐term research.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Wildlife Management. Jan2023, Vol. 87 Issue 1, p1-17. 17p.

Abstract: Capture and handling techniques for individual‐based, long‐term research that tracks the life history of animals by recapturing the same individuals for several years has vastly improved study inferences and our understanding of animal ecology. Yet the...

How to define a dolphin "group"? Need for consistency and justification based on objective criteria.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecology & Evolution (20457758). Nov2022, Vol. 12 Issue 11, p1-18. 18p.

Abstract: Group living is a critical component of the ecology of social animals such as delphinids. In many studies on these animals, groups represent sampling units that form the basis of the collection and analysis of data on their abundance, behavior, and soc...

Time counts in animal ecology.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Animal Ecology. Nov2022, Vol. 91 Issue 11, p2154-2157. 4p.

Abstract: The Sidnie Manton Award has recognised ECR excellence in research in multiple areas of animal ecology, including computer vision (Weinstein, 2018), macroimmunology (Becker et al., 2020) and most recently on animal-vectored spatial ecosystem subsidies (...

Population Cycles, Disease, and Networks of Ecological Knowledge.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of the history of biology [J Hist Biol] 2017 May; Vol. 50 (2), pp. 357-391.


Abstract: Wildlife populations in the northern reaches of the globe have long been observed to fluctuate or cycle periodically, with dramatic increases followed by catastrophic crashes. Focusing on the early work of Charles S. Elton, this article analyzes how in...

Helminth Fauna of Mouse-Like Rodents in the City of Moscow.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Biology Bulletin. Dec2022, Vol. 49 Issue 10, p1938-1946. 9p.

Abstract: Abstract—Urban environmental conditions significantly influence the ecology of animals, including helminth communities. The response of the helminth community to ecological imbalances and their adaptation to life in the urban environment remain an urge...

Mixed-species bird flocks re-assemble interspecific associations across an elevational gradient.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. 12/21/2022, Vol. 289 Issue 1989, p1-11. 11p.

Abstract: Understanding how non-trophic social systems respond to environmental gradients is still a challenge in animal ecology, particularly in comparing changes in species composition to changes in interspecific interactions. Here, we combined long-term monit...
