• Despotism and risk of infanticide influence grizzly bear den-site selection. 

      Libal, Nathan S.; Belant, Jerrold L.; Leopold, Bruce D.; Wang, Guiming; Owen, Patricia A. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Wildlife, Fisheries, and AquacultureCollege of Forest ResourcesForest and Wildlife Research CenterCarnivore Ecology Laboratory, 9/14/2011)
      Given documented social dominance and intraspecific predation in bear populations, the ideal despotic distribution model and sex hypothesis of sexual segregation predict adult female grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) will avoid ...
    • Effects of Maternal Nutrition, Resource Use and Multi-Predator Risk on Neonatal White-Tailed Deer Survival 

      Duquette, Jared F.; Belant, Jerrold L.; Svoboda, Nathan J.; Beyer, Dean E.; Lederle, Patrick E. (Public Library of ScienceForest and Wildlife Research CenterCarnivore Ecology Laboratory, 6/26/2014)
    • How does spatial study design influence density estimates from spatial capture-recapture models? 

      Sollmann, Rahel; Gardner, Beth; Belant, Jerrold L. (Public Library of ScienceForest and Wildlife Research CenterCarnivore Ecology Laboratory, 4/23/2012)
      When estimating population density from data collected on non-invasive detector arrays, recently developed spatial capture-recapture (SCR) models present an advance over non-spatial models by accounting for individual ...
    • Provisioning of game meat to rural communities as a benefit of sport hunting in Zambia. 

      White, Paula A.; Belant, Jerrold L. (Public Library of ScienceForest and Wildlife Research CenterCarnivore Ecology Laboratory, 2/18/2015)
      Sport hunting has reportedly multiple benefits to economies and local communities; however, few of these benefits have been quantified. As part of their lease agreements with the Zambia Wildlife Authority, sport hunting ...
    • Trap array configuration influences estimates and precision of black bear density and abundance. 

      Wilton, Clay M.; Puckett, Emily E.; Beringer, Jeff; Gardner, Beth; Eggert, Lori S.; Belant, Jerrold L. (Public Library of ScienceForest and Wildlife Research CenterCarnivore Ecology Laboratory, 10/28/2014)
      Spatial capture-recapture (SCR) models have advanced our ability to estimate population density for wide ranging animals by explicitly incorporating individual movement. Though these models are more robust to various spatial ...
