The role of dispersal in population dynamics of breeding Ross's geese
Spatial variation in density of organisms can lead to challenges in estimation of population size. Associated vital rates responsible for this variation also may vary geographically and in response to local ecological ...
Physiological and ecological aspects of winter torpor in captive and free-ranging striped skunks
The principle objective of this investigation was to develop an understanding of the physiological response and ecological aspects of winter torpor of small carnivores, specifically striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis) in ...
Population biology of Ross's geese at McConnell River, Nunavut
Understanding what influences movement patterns in animals is important to the understanding of colonization, range expansion, and source–sink dynamics. Ross’s geese (Chen rossii) have been expanding their nesting range ...
Parental care in northern flickers: sex-related patterns of foraging, provisioning, and habitat use
The sexes have different life histories that can influence their parental care strategies. I studied northern flicker, Colaptes auratus, parents and simultaneously radio-tracked mates during the nestling and post-fledging ...
