Diet of two populations of Sceloporus grammicus was determined from Tilcuautla and La Estanzuela, Hidalgo, Mexico. Diet of S. grammicus is primarily Araneae, Insecta (Coleoptera, Dermaptera, Diptera, Hemiptera, Homoptera, Hymenoptera Lepidoptera, and Orthoptera), Mollusca (gastropods), and Reptilia (Sauria). Hymenoptera and Coleoptera were most frequent in the diet of both populations. ...

The western pond turtle (Actinemys marmorata) has lost most of its habitat in the Central Valley of California to agricultural activities, flood control, and urbanization. although a few areas still support this turtle, most habitats are now altered by humans. Aquatic habitats near population centers also may become release sites ...

We intensively sampled fishes from two reaches of the Rio Grande within the Albuquerque Basin (Albuquerque and Belen valleys) during 1998-2001, compared our findings with those from 1984, and compiled a list of all fishes known from the two reaches. Structure of assemblages (richness, diversity, abundance distributions-taxon dominance versus rank ...

Success in competition for a limited food resource can be determined in part by how efficiently a species digests food. We conducted in vivo trials to compare digestive performance by a guild of mast-consuming species in southern Texas: wild boar (Sus scrofa), white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), collared peccary (Pecari tajacu), ...

In Texas, introduced wild boars (Sus scrofa) consume mast crops that are high-quality foods sought by native wildlife. Because mast often is abundant but ephemeral, competition among species is expected. Relative rates of intake among individuals can determine how much mast can be obtained and digested. Our objective was to ...

We compared diversity and abundance of small mammals at colonies of black-tailed prairie dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus) and paired non-colony sites. Of colonies of black-tailed prairie dogs in our study area, >80% were on slopes of playa lakes; thus, we used sites of colonies and non-colonies that were on slopes of ...

The eastern fox squirrel (Sciurus nigger) is one of 22 non-native species of mammals now successfully breeding in the wild in California. The focus of this study was to describe current and historical distribution of the eastern fox squirrel in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area (Los Angeles, Orange, and ...

Status of the common muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus) in the southern High Plains and western Rolling Plains has remained uncertain due to a scarcity of records. I examined diversity of riparian habitats, frequency of occurrence of habitats, availability of habitats, and use of habitats by muskrats within an irrigation drainage system ...

Our objective was to use the 50%-core-area estimation to measure size of home range of urban-breeding white-winged doves (Zenaida asiatica) from two ecoregions in Texas. We collected data on locations using subcutaneously implanted radiotransmitters on 40 white-winged doves in Kingsville, Kleberg County, during 2000, and 40 and 39 white-winged doves ...

Studies of birds in winter are rare in wildlife ecology despite winter being a critical time for birds. We examined winter assemblages of birds in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests of northern Arizona following prescribed fire. we conducted point counts on two study sites in northern Arizona from mid-October to ...

We used radiotelemetry to document and compare activity and movement between the western spotted skunk Spilogale gracilis, and the striped skunk Mephitis mephitis in Texas. Mephitis mephitis had a higher rate of movement than S. gracilis. Both species had highest rates of movement during autumn, coinciding with dispersal of young. ...
