A major side-effect of industrial activity is the associated linear-feature footprint and increase in recreational access. Alberta’s threatened grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) populations overlap with a multitude of different potential forms of human disturbance, including human recreational...
Venison to beef and deviance from truth: biotelemetry for detecting seasonal wolf prey selection in AlbertaDownload
An abrupt interface between mountains and prairies in southwestern Alberta means wilderness areas and carnivore populations overlap cattle grazing lands. Consequently, there is concern about the effects of large carnivores, especially wolves, on livestock. I used GPS clusters and scat samples...
Woodland caribou population declines in west-central Alberta precipitated a wolfcontrol. This program to protect caribou could be compromised if (1) there are strong public pressures against helicopter gunning and strychnine poisoning of wolves and/or (2) other predators compensate to kill...
