Article
Monitoring trends in the occurrence of species over time is important for informing conservation plans and concurrent management actions. Understanding the effectiveness of field methodologies for collecting accurate and precise data is crucial for optimizing allocation of sampling effort and resources. In this study, we compared mammalian species...
Article
Poaching is a pervasive threat to wildlife, yet quantifying the direct effect of poaching on wildlife is rarely possible because both wildlife and threat data are infrequently collected concurrently. In this study, we used poaching data collected through the Management Information System (MIST) and wildlife camera trap data collected by the Tropica...
Article
Poaching is a global problem causing the decline of species worldwide. Optimizing the efficiency of ranger patrols to deter poaching activity at the lowest possible cost is crucial for protecting species with limited resources. We applied decision analysis and spatial optimization algorithms to allocate efforts of ranger patrols throughout a nation...

Arboreal camera trapping is a burgeoning method providing a novel and effective technique to answer research questions across a variety of ecosystems, and it has the capacity to improve our understanding of a wide range of taxa. However, while terrestrial camera trapping has received much attention, there is little guidance for dealing with the uni...
Article
A multitude of different statistical models are commonly used to monitor trends in wildlife populations. Most are used to estimate abundance or survival (or both), and these estimates are then examined over time to infer trends in a population. The choice of which model to use is influenced by the key research question of interest and the types of...
Article
Population projection models are important tools for conservation and management. They are often used for population status assessments, for threat analyses, and to predict the consequences of conservation actions. Although conservation decisions should be informed by science, critical decisions are often made with very little information to suppor...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding fish population status and trends are fundamental to effective research and management. Challenges in understanding population status include recognizing and accounting for sources of variation in capture probability (p ̂) that can obscure patterns in count data and bias inferences about the population. In systems where management act...
Article
Full-text available
The objective of many fish and wildlife restoration programs is to utilize management actions to change the state of a system. Because restoration programs are often expensive, iteratively assessing whether the restoration is having the desired outcome is a critical aspect of learning how to inform ongoing and sampling designs to evaluate proposed...
Article
Full-text available
Within the Big Bend region of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, one of the least developed coastlines in the continental USA, intertidal and subtidal populations of eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica (hereafter referred to as “oyster”) are a critical ecosystem and important economic constituent. We assessed trends in intertidal oyster populations,...
Article
Full-text available
Conservationists increasingly use unstructured observational data, such as citizen science records or ranger patrol observations, to guide decision making. These datasets are often large and relatively cheap to collect, and they have enormous potential. However, the resulting data are generally “messy,” and their use can incur considerable costs, s...
Article
Full-text available
Bushmeat hunting is widely cited as cause for declines of wildlife populations throughout Africa. Forest duikers (Bovidae, Cephalophinae) are among the most exploited species. Whether current harvest rates imperil duikers is debated because of the difficulty of accurately assessing population trends. To assess population trends, we first reviewed l...
Article
Full-text available
Apex predators are crucial for maintaining ecological patterns and processes, yet humans hinder their ability to fulfil this role by displacing them from the landscape. Many apex predator species such as African lions (Panthera leo) are experiencing catastrophic declines as a result of competition with growing human populations. Increasing our unde...
Article
Exploring trends in species richness and the distribution of individual species over time as well as the factors affecting these trends informs conservation priorities in protecting species and ecosystems as a whole. We used data from 41 park‐wide line transect surveys in 2009 and 2014 and multi‐season occupancy models with multi‐species data to ex...
Article

Populations of the endangered eastern chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) are declining throughout their range. Although Nyungwe National Park (NNP) harbors the largest remaining eastern chimpanzee population in Rwanda, we know little about their space use and dietary patterns. We studied home range, movement, and diet of two communities of...
Article
Full-text available
Organochlorine pesticides disrupted reproduction and killed many raptorial birds, and contributed to population declines during the 1940s-1970s. We sought to discern whether and to what extent territory occupancy and breeding success changed from the pesticide era to recent years in a resident population of Peregrine Falcons Falco peregrinus in sou...
Article
Full-text available
Reproduction is thought to be costly for female mammals due to high energetic costs associated with pregnancy and lactation. Such costs of reproduction can be particularly high for younger females, who are less experienced and smaller than fully grown adults, and can manifest themselves within (intra-individual or intra-generational trade-offs) or...

This project compiles the literature on the use and potential of arboreal camera trapping. New uses for arboreal camera trapping are being developed and tested, and they are showing increased potential. This reference compilation should make it easier for those looking to use arboreal camera trapping to find supporting information. Submit your papers to Diego Balbuena or Farah Carrasco via a direct message through Research Gat if it's not already in the references tab.
