- ... Anthropogenic disturbances fragmenting wildlife habitat greatly contribute to extinction risk for many species. In western Canada, four decades of oil and gas exploration have created a network of seismic lines, which are linear disturbances where seismic equipment operates. Seismic lines cause habitat fragmentation and increase predator access to intact forest, leading to declines of some wildlif ...

- ... Carnivore extinctions frequently have cascading impacts through an ecosystem, so effective management of ecological communities requires an understanding of carnivore vulnerability. This has been hindered by the elusive nature of many carnivores, as well as a disproportionate focus on large-bodied species and particular geographic regions. We use multiple survey methods and a hierarchical multi-sp ...
