Hide-and-Seek in a Highly Human-Dominated Landscape: Insights into Movement Patterns and Selection of Resting Sites of Rehabilitated Wolves (Canis lupus) in Northern Italy
| Contributor(s):: Torretta, Elisa, Corradini, Andrea, Pedrotti, Luca, Bani, Luciano, Bisi, Francesco, Dondina, Olivia
Assessing the behavioural responses of floating wolves to human presence is crucial for investigating the chance of wolf populations expanding into urbanised landscapes. We studied the movement ecology of three rehabilitated wolves in a highly human-dominated landscape (Po Plain, Italy) to...
How do humans impact yellow-bellied marmots? An integrative analysis
| Contributor(s):: Morgan, Alyssa, Monclús, Raquel, Nelson, Julia, Foli, Eliza, Chunwang, Li, Blumstein, Daniel T.
While many studies document specific human impacts on the behaviour and physiological responses of wildlife to humans, most have focused on these responses independently and over relatively short periods of time. To address this, we studied a suite of responses in yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota...
Responses of wild reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) when provoked by a snow-kiter or skier: A model approach
| Contributor(s):: Colman, Jonathan E., Lilleeng, Marte S., Tsegaye, Diress, Vigeland, Magnus D., Reimers, Eigil
We compared reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) fright responses towards a directly approaching snow-kiter or skier in Norefjell-Reinsjøfjell, Norway during winter in 2006–2007. Fright response distances sampled in the field were significantly longer when approached by a snow-kiter than by a...
Organizing space and time through relational human-animal boundary work: exclusion, invitation and disturbance
| Contributor(s):: Daniel Sage, Lise Justesen, Andrew R.J. Dainty, K. Trygesstad, Jan Mouritsen
In this paper we examine the role that animals play within human organizational boundary work. In so doing, we challenge the latent anthropocentricism in many, if not most, theories of organization that locate animal agencies outside the boundary work that is said to constitute organizing. In...
Inventory of Small and Large Mammal Diversity in a Fragmented Landscape: A Baseline for Investigating Ecological Impacts of Human Disturbance
| Contributor(s):: Joseph Wantuch
Systematic study of biological diversity is a prerequisite for understanding the ecological effects of climate instability and human disturbance. Our study is part of the Rugar Woods All Taxa Biological Inventory (ATBI) project, which seeks to document the biodiversity of Rugar Woods....
Swooping in the Suburbs; Parental Defence of an Abundant Aggressive Urban Bird against Humans
| Contributor(s):: Daniel Lees, Craig D.h. Sherman, Grainne S. Maguire, Peter Dann, Adam P.a. Cardilini, Michael A. Weston
Masked Lapwings, Vanellus miles, often come into ‘conflict’ with humans, because they often breed in close proximity to humans and actively defend their ground nests through aggressive behaviour, which typically involves swooping. This study examined whether defensive responses...
Effects of humans on behaviour of wildlife exceed those of natural predators in a landscape of fear
