  3. How do Suburban Coyote Attacks Affect Residents' Perceptions? Insights from a New York Case Study

    Contributor(s):: William F. Siemer, Daniel J. Decker, James E. Shanahan, Heather A. Wieczorek Hudenko

    Understanding the human dimensions of human-coyote conflicts in metropolitan areas has taken on greater importance as coyotes (Canis latrans) have established themselves as the top predator in many urban ecosystems across North America. Though uncommon, coyote attacks on humans do occur in...

  5. Avian Use of Suburban Greenways as Stopover Habitat

    Contributor(s):: Salina M. Kohut

    The decline of Neotropical migrant songbirds has called attention to the need for habitat conservation along the entire migratory route, and scientists now recognize the need to conserve stopover habitat in addition to habitat on the breeding and wintering grounds. Greenways are a popular means...

  8. Estimating deer abundance in suburban areas with infrared-triggered cameras

    Contributor(s):: Paul D. Curtis, Bazartseren Boldgiv, Peter M. Mattison, Jason R. Boulanger

    Interactions between humans and white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) have become common, often resulting in management actions to mitigate negative impacts. Changes in population size are generally used to judge management actions. We examined deer population estimation techniques during 2...

  9. A survey of dog ownership in suburban Australia - conditions and behaviour problems

    Contributor(s):: Kobelt, A. J., Hemsworth, P. H., Barnett, J. L., Coleman, G. J.

    There has been an increasing emphasis in Australia on confining dogs to owner's properties (household backyards) as a solution to problems of dog aggression. Therefore, there is a need to determine the social and physical conditions that make up the dog's backyard environment and how these...

  10. Knowledge, attitudes, and opinions about human-wildlife conflicts held by community leaders in Virginia

    Contributor(s):: Regina M. Elsner

    Using a mail survey, I questioned 490 representatives of local government (i.e., elected officials, administrative officials, animal control officers, and county Cooperative Extension agents) about their understanding of human-wildlife conflicts in their communities, and their receptivity to...

  11. Deer–vehicle collision trends at a suburban immunocontraception site

    Contributor(s):: Allen T. Rutberg, Ricky E. Naugle

    Observations of extended estrus seasons in female white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) vaccinated with porcine zona pellucida (PZP) immunocontraceptives have led to speculation that management use of PZP would, perversely, increase the rate of deer–vehicle collisions. To test this...

  12. The human-dog relationship: a tale of two species

    | Contributor(s):: Alan M. Beck, C. N.L. Macpherson (editor), F. X. Meslin (editor), Alexander I. Wandeler (editor)

They may follow one another forfood, or flee together even when only one senses the danger. In natural symbioticrelationships, one participant does not significantly alter...

  13. The behaviour of Labrador retrievers in suburban backyards: the relationships between the backyard environment and dog behaviour

    | Contributor(s):: Kobelt, A. J., Hemsworth, P. H., Barnett, J. L., Coleman, G. J., Butler, K. L.

    Most pet dogs in urban Australia are confined to their owners' property in a suburban backyard. Despite the literature on the effect of captive environments on both farm and zoo animals, there is little objective information on the effects of confining pet dogs. The prevalence of behavioural...
