The road to deforestation: Edge effects in an endemic ecosystem in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Erin E Poor, Virta I M Jati, Muhammad Ali Imron, Marcella J Kelly,

Worldwide, roads are a main driver of deforestation and degradation as they increase forest access along the forest edge. In many tropical areas, unofficial roads go unreported and unrecorded, resulting in inaccurate estimates of intact forested areas. This is the case in central Sumatra, which boasts populations of critically endangered ... Read more >>

Elephant (Elephas maximus) temporal activity, distribution, and habitat use patterns on the tiger's forgotten trails across the seasonally dry, subtropical, hilly Churia forests of Nepal.

Kanchan Thapa, Marcella J Kelly, Narendra Man Babu Pradhan,

Understanding spatial distribution, habitat use, and temporal activity patterns is important for species conservation planning. This information especially is crucial for mega herbivores like elephants as their ranging patterns encompass a myriad of habitats types. Churia habitat is geological fragile yet important for wildlife in Nepal and India. We used ... Read more >>

The search for understanding: the role of paradigms.

Marcella Kelly, Maura Dowling, Michelle Millar,

BACKGROUND:Kuhn's ( 1962 ) acknowledgement of a paradigm as a way that scientists make sense of their world and its reality gave recognition to the idea of 'paradigm shift'. This shift exposes the transience of paradigm development shaped by societal and scientific evolution. This ongoing evolutionary development provides the researcher ... Read more >>

Spatial Mark-Resight for Categorically Marked Populations with an Application to Genetic Capture-Recapture

Ben Augustine, Frances Stewart, Andrew Royle, Jason Fisher, Marcella Kelly,

Abstract The estimation of animal population density is a fundamental goal in wildlife ecology and management, commonly met using mark recapture or spatial mark recapture (SCR) study designs and statistical methods. Mark-recapture methods require the identification of individuals; however, for many species and sampling methods, particularly noninvasive methods, no individuals ... Read more >>

Spatial Capture-Recapture for Categorically Marked Populations with An Application to Genetic Capture-Recapture

Ben Augustine, Andrew Royle, Sean Murphy, Richard Chandler, John Cox, Marcella Kelly,

Abstract Recently introduced unmarked spatial capture-recapture (SCR), spatial mark-resight (SMR), and 2-flank spatial partial identity models (SPIM) extend the domain of SCR to populations or observation systems that do not always allow for individual identity to be determined with certainty. For example, some species do not have natural marks that ... Read more >>

Spatial Capture-Recapture with Partial Identity: An Application to Camera Traps

Ben Augustine, Andrew Royle, Marcella Kelly, Christopher Satter, Robert Alonso, Erin Boydston, Kevin Crooks,

Camera trapping surveys frequently capture individuals whose identity is only known from a single flank. The most widely used methods for incorporating these partial identity individuals into density analyses discard some of the partial identity capture histories, reducing precision, and while not previously recognized, introducing bias. Here, we present the ... Read more >>

Potential for camera-traps and spatial mark-resight models to improve monitoring of the critically endangered West African lion (Panthera leo)

Mamadou D Kane, Dana J Morin, Marcella J Kelly,

West African lions are critically endangered throughout their range. Recent monitoring efforts focused on determining where remaining populations persist and obtaining preliminary population estimates to assess status across the region. However, current monitoring methods do not result in estimates that can be easily compared across sites or over time. Thus, ... Read more >>

Noninvasive individual and species identification of jaguars (Panthera onca), pumas (Puma concolor) and ocelots (Leopardus pardalis) in Belize, Central America using cross‐species microsatellites and faecal DNA

Claudia Wultsch, Lisette P Waits, Marcella J Kelly,

There is a great need to develop efficient, noninvasive genetic sampling methods to study wild populations of multiple, co‐occurring, threatened felids. This is especially important for molecular scatology studies occurring in challenging tropical environments where DNA degrades quickly and the quality of faecal samples varies greatly. We optimized 14 polymorphic ... Read more >>

Tigers need cover: multi-scale occupancy study of the big cat in Sumatran forest and plantation landscapes.

Sunarto Sunarto, Marcella J Kelly, Karmila Parakkasi, Sybille Klenzendorf, Eka Septayuda, Harry Kurniawan,

The critically endangered Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae Pocock, 1929) is generally known as a forest-dependent animal. With large-scale conversion of forests into plantations, however, it is crucial for restoration efforts to understand to what extent tigers use modified habitats. We investigated tiger-habitat relationships at 2 spatial scales: occupancy across ... Read more >>
