Trophic Patterns of an Insectivorous Bat Community Foraging Over Urban and Pristine Streams as Revealed by Stable Isotope and Fecal Analyses 2007 2378 The North Buffalo Creek wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) has a demonstrated impact on basal stream components and the foraging activity of common bat species in the watershed. I examined trophic patterns of common bat species upstream and downstream...
A genetic analysis of the fission-fusion roosting behavior of tree-roosting maternity colonies of big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) 2006 1420 In Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, Saskatchewan, Canada, tree-roosting big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) exhibit fission-fusion roosting behavior and are philopatric to one of three non-overlapping roosting areas. Bats switch roost trees and pote...
A genetic and behavioral analysis of intraspecific variation in mating behavior of deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus) 2007 1512 "Several studies have examined individual mating behaviors of wild peromyscine rodents. Many of these studies were short term and were limited to a single population in a single breeding season, so it is not clear to what extent mating behaviors vary...
Use of Forest Edges by Bats in a Managed Pine Forest Landscape in Coastal North Carolina 2008 3029 Forest edges represent the interface of two vegetation types and often have increased species richness and abundance (edge effects). Edges can affect spatial distribution of species and dynamics of species interactions. Landscapes of intensively mana...
The Influence of Water Source Type and Insect Abundance on Bat Foraging Behavior in a Managed Pine Landscape 2008 2129 Bats forage over calm, open water presumably because of high insect abundance, low echolocation interference, and few flight obstacles. Changes to the physical structure of water sources could be important to bats. Many wetlands in coastal North Caro...
The individual context of ultrasonic vocalizations in wild monogamous California mice (Peromyscus californicus). 2009 1595 Ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) are commonly produced by the rodent species in the Super Family Muroidea. The bulk of USV research has been conducted on Mus and Rattus exclusively in a laboratory setting. There is variation in the production and func...
The individual context of ultrasonic vocalizations produced by free-living Brush mice (Peromyscus boylii) with an emphasis on differences between males and females 2010 1243 Muroid rodents regularly use ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs). The majority of research work on USV communication in rodents comes from laboratory strains of rats (Rattus norvegicus) and mice (Mus musculus). Peromyscus boylii species like M. musculus ...
The influence of managing a loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) forest for biofuels production via switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) intercropping and woody debris removal on rodents 2011 1628 The abundance and distribution of wildlife communities can be influenced by many factors including resources, competitors, predators and parasites, and climate. Changes to managed forest understory composition and structure may affect ecologically im...
Species differences and interspecific interactions in wild Peromyscus ultrasonic vocalizations 2009 1247 Ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) are commonly produced by many rodents, including all muroids investigated to date (18 genera). The overall adaptive significance of USVs within muroid rodents is not well understood. Most research has focused on the mu...
Effects of intercropping switchgrass with Loblolly pine on the diet and trophic position of Peromyscus leucopus 2011 695 Managed pine plantations have been recognized as potentially suitable land for producing biofuel feedstocks. Intercropping biofuel feedstocks, particularly switchgrass ((Panicum virgatum L., a native C4 grass), in existing loblolly p...
Landscape-scale effects of intercropping switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) and Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda) on rodent community structure and population demographics 2013 548 Currently, U.S. state and federal mandates are attempting to lower fossil fuel consumption to reduce dependency on foreign oils and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Intercropping switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) in southern pine fore...
Influence of intercropping switchgrass in intensively managed pine forests on ultrasound produced by bats and rodents 2013 552 Intensively managed pine forests provide habitat for a diversity of wildlife species, including bats and rodents. In Kemper Co., MS, USA, Weyerhaeuser Company and Catchlight Energy LLC, on land owned and managed by Weyerhaeuser, intercrops `Alamo' sw...
Year-round activity of peripheral bat populations in the North Carolina coastal plain 2014 328 Within a species' distribution, there is often a core population that constitutes the majority of individuals. When threats to a species are present, the core populations within the species distribution usually receive the majority of the conservatio...
Determining nightly bat activity with, and sampling effectiveness of, modified NABat driving transects in urban areas 2017 561 Time of peak bat activity during the night differs among bat species. Foraging strategies may differ among species due to prey availability, habitat availability, and/or interactions between species. Habitat availability is altered in urban areas, wh...
How does behavior drive population and community dynamics of rodents? 2017 17 Understanding how population and community dynamics emerge from individual traits is essential to predict responses of animal populations and communities to habitat alterations. Individuals make decisions and are the basic unit of response to changes...
