      The basic biology of wolves suggests that they have a modest influence on elk dynamics. The wolf has the bite force, body size, and cooperative behavior to kill a wide array of ungulates ranging from diminutive deer to one-ton bison (Mech et al. ). AbstractEnvironmentally mediated changes in body size often underlie population responses to environmental change, yet this is not a universal phenomenon. Understanding when phenotypic change underlies population responses to environmental change is important for obtaining insights and robust predictions of population dynamics in a changing world.

    Population Genetics of Multiple Loci F. B. Christiansen University of Aarhus, Denmark "This is a very beautiful and powerful study of an area that Christiansen has dominated for many years." – Marcus Feldman, Stanford University, USA Population genetics thrives on the constant interaction between theoretical and empirical knowledge.

    The elk recovery did not come easily. Scientists have had to learn much about the animal’s biology, population dynamics, habitat needs, relations with predators, and responses to hunting. Hunters are continually being asked to comprehend new and increasingly complex hunting regulations and management proposals.   The reintroduction of wolves (Canis lupus) to Yellowstone provided the unusual opportunity for a quasi-experimental test of the effects of wolf predation on their primary prey (elk – Cervus elaphus) in a system where top-down, bottom-up, and abiotic forces on prey population dynamics were closely and consistently monitored before and after reintroduction. Here, we examined data from 33 years.

This term is commonly used in the fields of biology, ecology, and conservation refers to the smallest possible size at which a biological population can exist without facing extinction from natural disasters or demographic, environmental, or genetic stochasticity.

Crop production must double by to meet global demands due to population growth and animal and biofuel consumption. However, for the last two decades, global crop yield has only increased from to % in corn, soybean, rice, and wheat; insufficient to meet predicted needs. Alternatives are needed.

By explicitly keeping track of each year class of elk, we are able to tease out the differential effects of human hunters and wolves on elk population dynamics and carrion availability to scavengers.

What emerges is a community perspective of predator–prey dynamics that so far has been ignored in these types of models. Population Dynamics Topic: Population dynamics, population growth and survival of the species. Target Grades: 9 through 12 with applicable adaptations per grade level.

This unit represents basic population information and various activities associated with population growth, carrying capacity, and species survival plans. The Society’s Wildlife Publication Awards recognize excellence in scientific literature of wildlife biology and management issued within the last three years.

The publications selected are characterized by originality of research or thought and a high. Introduction. Survival estimates are critical parameters for various ecological models, particularly population dynamics, which in turn inform is particularly important for long-lived vertebrates which may take several years to mature into breeding adults.However, survival estimates are often not available for long-lived birds such as storks; the only species for which.

Although monogamy is the primary mating system of the species, significant rates of extra-pair fertilizations have been identified by DNA-fingerprinting. Both the adaptive and proximate causes of clutch size variation in the species are discussed.

Other topics include age at first reproduction, timing of breeding, nest.Geographic Range. Alces alces, commonly called moose in North America and Eurasian elk in Europe, have a circumpolar distribution in the boreal forests of the Northern Hemisphere.(Eurasian elk should not be confused with North American elk, Cervus canadensis, which are a different species.)In Eurasia, Alces alces have a range on the west from Scandinavia, Poland and southern Czech Republic to.
