Robust assessment of associations between weather and eastern wild turkey nest success

Boone, W. W., Moorman, C. E., Moscicki, D. J., Collier, B. A., Chamberlain, M. J., Terando, A. J., & Pacifici, K. (2023, November 15). JOURNAL OF WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT, Vol. 11.

author keywords: climate change; Galliformes; Meleagris gallopavo; Phasianidae; precipitation; temperature; wet hen hypothesis
TL;DR: Temperature and precipitation have been identified as factors that potentially influence eastern wild turkey reproduction, but robust analyses testing the relationship between weather parameters and turkey nest success are lacking, and projections of future nest success or daily nest survival suggest that nest success may increase as January precipitation increases and thatdaily nest survival may increaseAs temperature during incubation increases.

Freshwater Mollusk Biology and Conservation, 20(1), 13.

By: T. Pandolfo, T. Kwak*, W. Cope n, R. Heise*, R. Nichols* & K. Pacifici n

TL;DR: Results indicate that mussels persisted at sites already occupied but that they have not colonized sites where they had not occurred previously, highlighting the importance of modeling approaches that incorporate imperfect detection in estimating species occurrence and revealing temporal trends to inform conservation planning.

Occupancy estimation for rare species using a spatially-adaptive sampling design

METHODS IN ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, 7(3), 285–293.

By: K. Pacifici n, B. Reich n, R. Dorazio* & M. Conroy*

author keywords: adaptive cluster sampling; informative sampling; probit regression; rare species; spatial regression; Tamarix ramosissima
