  1. Home ranges and habitat selection of white- tailed deer in a suburban nature area in eastern Nebraska

    Contributor(s):: Scott E Hygnstrom, Kurt C VerCauteren

    We evaluated the movements of 59 radio-collared female white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) at the Gifford Point Wildlife Management Area (GP) and Fontenelle Forest Nature Area (FF) in eastern Nebraska from 1994 to 1997. Annual home ranges averaged 276 ha (CI = 166 ha). Forty-four of the...

  2. Radio-telemetry and geographical information systems to assess urban deer zoonoses

    Contributor(s):: Karmen M. Hollis, Christopher L. Anchor, James E. Chelsvig, Dwayne R. Etter, J. P. Dubey

    Urban white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) populations can influence the epidemiology of many zoonotic diseases because they affect the distribution and abundance of pathogens and vectors. The risk of emerging zoonotic pathogens increases with human populations, as people have closer...

  3. Fall food habits of double-crested cormorants in Arkansas

    Contributor(s):: Albert E. Bivings, Michael D. Hoy, Jeffrey W. Jones

    One hundred forty-eight double-crested cormorants (Phalacrocorax auritus) were collected in October-December 1988. Some were collected while actively feeding, but most were collected at loafing or roosting areas. Of the 135 with fish in them, 79% contained gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum) and...

During August, 1968, I traveled to Missouri and spent a week working with Mr. Bob Smith, a long-time employee of the...

  5. Monitoring raccoon rabies in Alabama: the potential effects of habitat and demographics

    Contributor(s):: Wendy Arjo, Christine Fisher, James Armstrong, Dana Johnson, Frank Boyd

    Density, morphometrics, and disease prevalence of raccoon populations were determined in 4 habitats (agriculture, riverine, managed, and forested) in central Alabama. In addition we monitored 71 collared raccoons to determine survival. Density estimates were similar in the agriculture (ag) and...

  6. Multiple-species exclusion fencing and technology for mainland sites

    Contributor(s):: Tim Day, Roger MacGibbon

    Eradication of invasive vertebrate pests from increasingly large islands has become an important wildlife management and conservation tool internationally. Success on islands has prompted attempts to exclude and eradicate vertebrate pests from mainland sites. Early mainland exclusion efforts...
