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)

Response of beach-nesting American Oystercatchers to off-road vehicles: An experimental approach reveals physiological nuances and decreased nest attendance

The Condor, 120(1), 47–62.

By: S. Felton n, K. Pollock n & T. Simons n

author keywords: Field experiment; in situ; paired design; flight response; freezing behavior; American Oystercatcher
TL;DR: Higher nest attendance and lower departure rates late in incubation may have reflected a stronger attachment to nests closer to hatching or habituation to the driving treatment, although individuals continued to exhibit physiological responses to passing vehicles throughout incubation.

Waterbirds, 40(sp1), 10–18.

By: J. Stocking*, T. Simons*, A. Parsons* & A. O'Connell*

TL;DR: Either the raccoon reduction was inadequate, or factors other than predation cause more variation in nest success than previously recognized, which means a multi-faceted approach to management aimed at reducing nest losses to storm overwash, predation, and human disturbance is likely to yield the largest population level benefits.

A field evaluation of distance measurement error in auditory avian point count surveys

author keywords: abundance; auditory detections; bird surveys; distance estimation; measurement error; point count surveys
TL;DR: Findings, which are based on realistic field conditions, suggest measures of uncertainty in distance estimates to auditory detections are substantially higher than assumed by most researchers, which means aural point count estimates of avian abundance based on distance methods deserve careful scrutiny because they are likely biased.

TL;DR: The results suggest that daily nest survival rates do not increase monotonically from small to very large forest patches, and only one vegetation characteristic, a measure of concealment, was significantly correlated with successful nesting. (via Semantic Scholar)
