Demographic risk assessment for a harvested species threatened by climate change: polar bears in the Chukchi Sea

Ecological Applications.

By: E. Regehr*, M. Runge*, A. Duyke*, R. Wilson*, L. Polasek*, K. Rode*, N. Hostetter*, S. Converse*

author keywords: climate change; density dependence; habitat loss; harvest; polar bear; risk assessment; state-dependent management; subsistence; sustainability; Ursus maritimus
MeSH headings : Animals; Arctic Regions; Climate Change; Demography; Female; Ice Cover; Male; Risk Assessment; Ursidae / physiology
TL;DR: A novel population modeling-management framework that is based on species life history and accounts for habitat loss is applied to evaluate subsistence harvest for the Chukchi Sea (CS) polar bear subpopulation, finding that a harvest strategy with a starting total harvest rate of 2.7% would likely maintain subpopulation abundance above maximum net productivity level for the next 35 years.

Evaluation of camera trap‐based abundance estimators for unmarked populations

Ecological Applications.

author keywords: bait attraction; Boiga irregularis; brown treesnakes; density; Guam; invasive species; random encounter and staying time; sampling design; simulation; space to event; spatial capture-recapture
MeSH headings : Animals; Humans; Introduced Species; Population Density
TL;DR: The results indicate that, when limited to unmarked estimators and the use of lures, camera traps alone are unlikely to produce abundance estimates with utility for brown treesnake management, and all estimators for unmarked populations performed poorly. (via Semantic Scholar)

author keywords: capture-recapture-recovery; compensatory mortality; hierarchical Bayesian model; population dynamics; predator-prey dynamics; state-space models
MeSH headings : Animals; Birds; Charadriiformes; Oncorhynchus mykiss; Predatory Behavior; Rivers
TL;DR: Analyzing a long-term mark-recapture-recovery dataset of ESA-listed steelhead trout provides novel evidence that predation by Caspian terns may have been a super additive source of mortality during the smolt life-stage and a partially additive sources of mortality to the adult life- stage.
