    | Contributor(s):: Jessica Heppard

    Turtles are one of the most threatened taxa worldwide. In addition to direct anthropogenic impacts such as hunting and pollution, unintentional indirect human disturbance affects poikilothermic turtles by disrupting thermoregulatory basking behavior. In this thesis I assess the behavioral and...

  5. Temporal Variation of Moose–Vehicle Collisions in Alaska

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Lucian R. McDonald, Terry A. Messmer, Michael R. Guttery

    Collisions between vehicles and wildlife have long been recognized to pose threats to motorists and wildlife populations. In addition to the risk of injury or mortality faced by the motorists involved in wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVCs), other drivers are also put at risk due to road...

  6. The Identification and Application of Generalizable Spatial Patterns of Human-Wildlife Conflict

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Vivian F. Hawkinson

    Many human-wildlife conflict studies focus on one location or one individual species or taxonomic group; fewer comparative studies analyze patterns of conflict across species and regions. As a result, numerous studies report similar conclusions across diverse cases of human-wildlife conflict. I...

    Television networks like Discovery, Animal Planet, National Geographic, and the History Channel are failing to put conservation, education, and animal welfare ahead of ratings and profits when producing and airing films on wildlife. I believe it's time for wildlife filmmaking to move in a...

  8. Train–Elephant Collisions in a Biodiversity-Rich Landscape: A Case Study from Rajaji National Park, North India

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ritesh Joshi, Kanchan Puri

    Linear developments like railways and highways have a negative impact on ecological processes of wildlife species at a landscape level. The impacts in terms of wildlife mortality and threat to surviving populations of species have been well-studied; however, less work has been done to...

  9. Impacts of Elephant Crop-Raiding on Subsistence Farmers and Approaches to Reduce Human-Elephant Farming Conflict in Sagalla, Kenya

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Sophia Weinmann

    As human and elephant populations grow in Kenya, elephants increasingly leave parks to eat farmers’ crops while foraging, which creates epicenters of human-elephant conflict (HEC). This conflict compromises farmers’ food and economic security, impedes elephant conservation...

  10. Do Eastern Gray Squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) use Human-provided Cues to Increase Foraging Success in Urban Landscapes?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Aditya A. Mehta, Jeeva H. Rathnaweera

    The coexistence of humans with other animals in urban and suburban areas has given rise to a spectrum of agonistic and beneficial interactions. Animals thriving in urban settings are known to exhibit superior foraging and food extraction abilities compared to their wild conspecifics. This has...

  11. Efficacy of Management Efforts to Reduce Food-Related Dingo–Human Interactions and Conflict on K’gari (Fraser Island), Australia

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Behrendorff, Linda, King, Rachel, Allen, Benjamin L.

    Humans and dingoes (Canis familiaris (dingo)) share the environment of K’gari, and conflict inevitably occurs between the two species, particularly over food. Dingo attacks on humans have occurred, and some have been serious and even fatal in outcome. Wildlife feeding may cause animals to...

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Natalie Theresa Redmond

    Wildlife conservation is of the utmost importance to the preservation of a healthy planet, with the extinction of wild animals increasing at previously unseen rates. However, conservation is also becoming increasingly difficult without strong public support, and this often varies in extent and...

  18. Body Size and Bite Force of Stray and Feral Cats—Are Bigger or Older Cats Taking the Largest or More Difficult-to-Handle Prey?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Patricia A. Fleming, Heather M. Crawford, Clare H. Auckland, Michael C. Calver

    As carnivorans rely heavily on their head and jaws for prey capture and handling, skull morphology and bite force can therefore reflect their ability to take larger or more difficult-to-handle prey. For 568 feral and stray cats (Felis catus), we recorded their demographics (sex and age), source...
