The mountain pine beetle (MPB; Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins), a major pine forest pest native to western North America, has extended its range north and eastward during an ongoing outbreak. Determining how the MPB has expanded its range to breach putative barriers, whether physical...
Migration and survival of Parnassius smintheus: Detecting effects of habitat for individual butterfliesDownload
We examined the migration and survival of the butterfly Parnassius smintheus in a heterogeneous landscape consisting of 21 habitat patches imbedded in a matrix of meadow and forest habitat. We modified an existing mark-release-recapture model to account for multiple habitat types and fit the...
We used mark-recapture methods to estimate the number of Parnssius smintheus (Papilionidae) butterflies moving among 20 alpine meadows separated by varying amounts of forest along the east slope of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. We combined generalized additive models and generalized...
Are boreal birds resilient to forest fragmentation? An experimental study of short-term community responsesDownload
Abstract: We studied the effect of habitat fragmentation on the richness, diversity, turnover, and abundance of bleeding bird communities in old, boreal mixed-wood forest by creating isolated and connected forest fragments of 1, 10, 40, and 100 ha. Connected fragments were linked by 100 m wide...
