Fawn Counts and Adult Female Site Use Are Mismatched Indicators of Habitat Quality in an Endangered Deer

DIVERSITY-BASEL, 13(2).

By: J. Jacobs n, M. Lashley* & M. Cove n

author keywords: camera traps; Florida Keys; hierarchical model; N-mixture model; sea-level rise
TL;DR: It is indicated that fawn abundance was negatively associated with increasing elevation and human trails, contrary to models based on adult female observations alone, and the lowest elevations where fawns were most abundant were associated with dense wetland plant communities, which warrant further investigation given that those areas are most vulnerable to sea-level rise.

author keywords: camera traps; community ecology; detectability; mammals; relative abundance; species richness; study design; wildlife surveys
TL;DR: It was found that 25–35 camera sites were needed for precise estimates of species richness, depending on scale of the study, and the precision of species‐level estimates of occupancy was highly sensitive to occupancy level. (via Semantic Scholar)

Heightened nest loss in tropical forest fragments despite higher predator load in core forest

TROPICAL ECOLOGY, 60(2), 281–287.

By: C. Fernandez*, M. Alvarez* & M. Cove n

author keywords: Community ecology; Forest fragmentation; Nest predation; Predator-prey; Strong interactions; Understory birds
TL;DR: It is suggested that concentrated foraging is the underlying mechanism behind the community interactions that community members exist in concentrated use areas within forest fragments, which results in heightened predator foraging rates and thus stronger interactions in fragments despite more predators encountering the nests in core forest.

Towards recovery of an endangered island endemic: Distributional and behavioral responses of Key Largo woodrats associated with exotic predator removal

BIOLOGICAL CONSERVATION, 237, 423–429.

By: M. Cove n, T. Simons n, B. Gardner* & . Allan F. O'Connell*

author keywords: Camera trap; Felis; Neotoma; Nest supplementation; Multistate occupancy; Python; Woodrat
TL;DR: Woodrats that built stick-nests were more detectable than those that did not, which suggests that stick-Nest building could make woodrats more susceptible to predation from novel predators when performing the behavior. (via Semantic Scholar)

Co-occurrence dynamics of endangered Lower Keys marsh rabbits and free-ranging domestic cats: Prey responses to an exotic predator removal program

ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, 8(8), 4042–4052.

By: M. Cove n, B. Gardner*, T. Simons n & . Allan F. O'Connell*

author keywords: invasive species; occupancy; predator management; predator-prey dynamics
TL;DR: It is suggested that while rabbits can colonize and persist at sites where cats occur, it is the number of individual cats at a site that more strongly influences rabbit occupancy and colonization as they recolonize restored habitats. (via Semantic Scholar)

Assessing species traits and landscape relationships of the mammalian carnivore community in a neotropical biological corridor

BIODIVERSITY AND CONSERVATION, 25(4), 739–752.

By: L. Vargas*, M. Cove n, R. Manuel Spinola*, J. Cruz* & J. Saenz*

author keywords: Biological corridor; Camera traps; Carnivores; Occupancy models; Omnivores; Mesopredators
TL;DR: A camera trap survey at 38 sites across the San Juan–La Selva Biological Corridor in Costa Rica to assess occupancy and detection probabilities of the carnivore community revealed a negative relationship between omnivorous mesopredators and increasing forest and tree plantation cover, suggesting omnivores utilize forest fragments and edge habitats in agricultural landscapes.

Do coyotes Canis latrans influence occupancy of prey in suburban forest fragments?

CURRENT ZOOLOGY, 62(1), 1–6.

By: B. Jones*, M. Cove n, M. Lashley n & V. Jackson*

author keywords: camera traps; coyote; deer; rabbit; squirrel; urban wildlife
TL;DR: Coyotes play an important role in regulating the herbivorous mammals and hence may provide similar ecological benefits in urban/suburban forest fragments through trophic cascades, since hunting may not be allowed in urban and suburban habitats. (via Semantic Scholar)
