A potential metric of the attractiveness of bird song to humans
Contributor(s):: Blackburn, T. M., Su, Shan, Cassey, P.
The prevalence of passerines (mostly oscines, or songbirds) in international bird trade suggests that the possession or production of a song that is attractive or desirable to people may contribute to the likelihood of a species being traded. Testing this is difficult because we lack a general...

The needs of emerging commercial farmers in Namibia in relation to human-carnivore conflict
Contributor(s):: Bonnie Schumann
Carnivore species globally are on the decline and population extinctions continue despite intensive conservation efforts. In Namibia, although 13.6 % of the country falls under the protection of national parks or game reserves, most of these protected areas are situated along the coastline and...

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...

Includes a summary of available information on outbreaks of rabies recorded in canine animals in Alaska over a 9-year period (1949-57), and to discuss some problems relating to the natural history of rabies in high boreal regions.
Coyote depredation management: current methods and research needs
| Contributor(s):: Brian R. Mitchell, Michael M. Jaegar, Reginald H. Barrett
This paper examines the severity of livestock depredation by coyotes (Canis latrans), reviews evidence implicating breeding (or “alpha”) coyotes in the majority of incidents, evaluates currently used depredation control techniques, and suggests directions for future research. Nonlethal control...
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...

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...

Distribution and disease prevalence of feral hogs in Missouri
| Contributor(s):: R. Edwin Hartin, Mark R. Ryan, Tyler A. Campbell
No attempts have been made to document the distribution of feral hogs (Sus scrofa) in Missouri. Also, antibody prevalence for pseudorabies virus and swine brucellosis have not been reported from Missouri. Our objectives were to characterize the current distribution of feral hogs in Missouri and...
