      Luo, Yan; Street, Jason T.; Steele, Philip H.; Entsminger, Edward D.; Guda, Vamshi K. (BioResourcesDepartment of Sustainable BioproductsCollege of Forest ResourcesForest and Wildlife Research Center, 2016-10-26)
      Activated carbon was prepared from pyrolyzed pinewood char using KOH, H3PO4, H2O2, and heat-only treatments. Activated carbon prepared by the heat-only treatment had a total surface area of 233.2 m2/g, a total pore volume ...
    • Alternative Mowing Regimes’ Influence on Native Plants and Deer. 

      Guyton, John W.; Jones, Jeanne C.; Entsminger, Edward D. (Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT), Jackson, MSDepartment of Wildlife, Fisheries and AquacultureCollege of Forest ResourcesForest and Wildlife Research Center, 2014-07)
      This study evaluated mowing regimes, changes in native and non-native plant communities, deer presence in the research plots,and public perception of various management practices on ROWs. No significant difference was found ...
    • 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

    • Evaluation of Mowing Frequency on Right-of-Way Plant Communities in Mississippi. 

      Entsminger, Edward D.; Jones, Jeanne C.; Guyton, John W.; Strickland, Bronson K.; Leopold, Bruce D. (Journal of Fish and Wildlife ManagementDepartment of Wildlife, Fisheries and AquacultureDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyCollege of Forest ResourcesCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesForest and Wildlife Research Center, 2017-06-08)
      Native grasses and native wildflowers are declining, especially along roadside right-of-ways because of intensive mowing and herbicide management practices. Roadside right-of-ways undergo regular disturbances such as mowing, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Mississippi Landmarks (Volume 7, Number 2, Spring 2011) 

      Entsminger, Edward D. (Division of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary MedicineDepartment of Wildlife, Fisheries and AquacultureCollege of Forest ResourcesForest and Wildlife Research CenterDivision of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine, 2011-03)
    • Plant community response to reduced mowing regimens along highway right-of-ways in northeastern Mississippi. 

      Entsminger, Edward D. (ProQuest LLC PublishingDepartment of Wildlife, Fisheries and AquacultureCollege of Forest ResourcesForest and Wildlife Research Center, 2014-06-10)
      I investigated percent coverage, plant height, species richness, and woody stem density in plant communities in ten study plots during spring and fall (2010-2012) within 3 different treatments (continual mowings, one fall ...
    • 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 ...
