BIG ANIMALS and SMALL PARKS - Implications of Wildlife Distribution and Movements for Expansion of Nahanni National Park Reserve
This WCS report describes the ‘boundary problem’ of Nahanni National Park Reserve in the Northwest Territories of Canada where it’s small size and narrow shape presents a challenge for protection of wide ranging species. Surveys were conducted on the distribution and seasonal movements of grizzly bears, Dall’s sheep, and woodland caribou to inform decisions on park expansion and land use planning.
Carnivores and Corridors in the Crowsnest Pass
This Alberta Species at Risk Report examines the habitat use and movements of grizzly bears and cougars in the Crowsnest Pass of southern Albert, a region with high habitat fragmentation due to human land uses.
Caribou and the North - A Shared Future
The book explores the reason for the interlinked fate of caribou and the North, as it relates to migratory tundra caribou, boreal forest caribou, and mountain caribou in Canada and the U.S. Climate change coupled with widespread oil, gas, and mineral development adds new pressure for the region’s iconic wildlife.
Dead or alive - animal sampling during Ebola hemorrhagic fever outbreaks in humans
This article provides guidelines for identifying animal sources of disease outbreaks, specifically sources of Ebolavirus (EBOV) during outbreaks of human Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF). Guidance is given on sampling animals when resources are limited, when targeting specific species, and when rapid diagnosis of EBOV in animal reservoirs is necessary.
Lynx Survey in the Adirondack Park
This article describes a survey to determine whether there is a population of Canada lynx within the area around the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks. The survey involved a non-invasive technique using the natural cheek-rubbing behavior of cats for hair collection and DNA analysis. This was a follow-up survey to the release of 83 translocated lynx by a team of biologists from SUNY ESF in the late 1980's.
Natural Solutions - Protected areas helping people cope with climate change
This book articulates how protected areas contribute significantly to reducing impacts of climate change and what is needed for protected area management to be even more effective. The message of this book is to convey the importance of the impacts of climate change on biodiversity to policy makers to encourage effective policies and funding mechanisms.
Noninvasive Survey Methods for Carnivores
This book is a comprehensive guide for wildlife researchers who seek to conduct carnivore surveys using the most up-to-date scientific approaches. Twenty-five experts from across North America discuss strategies for implementing surveys across a broad range of habitats, providing input on survey design, sample collection, DNA and endocrine analyses, and data analysis.
Projecting transition probabilities for regular public roads at the ecoregional scale - A Northern Appalachian, Acadian case study
This article investigates the growth of public roads in Maine over a 17-year period to select the best model to predict future road growth. The selected model predicted 0.5 million km of new roads in the Northern Appalachian / Acadian ecoregion for the next two decades. This type of model will assist planning agencies and conservation organizations to protect against biodiversity threats due to road expansion.
Setting Conservation and Research Priorities for larger African Carnivores
This working paper establishes conservation priorities for large carnivores in Africa that will contribute to the establishment of long term conservation strategies in the face of increasing human-induced threats to the persistence of these species.
Species Feeling the Heat - Connecting Deforestation and Climate Change
This Wildlife Conservation Society report profiles more than a dozen animal species and groups that are facing threats due to climate change impacts including: changing land and sea temperatures; shifting rain patterns; exposure to new pathogens and disease; and increased threats of predation.
