We report the first observation of depredation on a nest of the eastern meadowlark (Sturnella magna) by a speckled kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula holbrooki). Depredation events probably are opportunistic, but they may have an impact on local populations of eastern meadowlarks.

Crematogaster sotobosque is a Neotropical ant previously known as far north as Costa Rica. We report on a collection of this species from a mixed-deciduous-conifer forest in the Santa Catalina Mountains, Pima County, Arizona. We also extend the known distribution of this species southward to Bolivia.

Lampropeltis ruthveni is recorded for the first time from four localities in the Mexican state of Hidalgo. This expands the known range northeastward by 84.6 km (by air) from the nearest locality in the state of Queretaro.

Larvae of the phorid fly Megaselia scalaris were in eggs in a naturally incubated nest of an alligator snapping turtle (Macrochelys temminckii). It appears that these larvae contributed to failure of this nest. Infestation by phorid larvae has been reported previously for eggs and nests of multiple species of turtles, ...

New distributional records are reported for millipeds of the orders Callipodida, Chordeumatida, Julida, Polydesmida, and Spirobolida. Two state records are documented for the julids, Brachyiulus lusitanus (Verhoeff) and B. pusillus (Leach) in Texas. In addition, we report 21 county records for other taxa, including the third record for Aliulus caddoensis ...

Diet of Harris' hawks (Parabuteo unicinctus) was analyzed using 94 pellets and 128 remains of prey collected during autumn-winter 2006 and 2007 in Reserva Oasis la Campana, a privately protected coastal area in central Chile. Hawks consumed primarily small mammals (69.6% frequency, 88.4% biomass). Although native rodents were consumed most ...

We report five new records of mammals for Le Flore County, Oklahoma, and additional records of Sorex longirostris for the state. Records for 14 other species, some not reported from the county or state in decades, provide new information on distributions in southeastern Oklahoma.

We conducted a survey in March 2007 of two neighborhoods in Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, where coyotes (Canis latrans) were present. The survey was conducted originally in 1992 in the same neighborhoods. We compared responses between years. Coyotes appeared habituated to humans to the point of approaching dogs on leashes; ...

We report observations on feeding and nesting behavior, reproductive condition, and activity patterns of the Mexican red-bellied squirrel (Sciurus aureogaster) during 2000-2002 in an oakpine (Quercus-Pinus) forest south of Patzcuaro, Michoacan, Mexico. Squirrels fed heavily on seeds of pines, oaks, and dogwoods (Cornus), and rarely cached food. Squirrels used leaf ...

We determined the effect of three concentrations of gibberellic acid on germination and photoblastic behavior of five species of Opuntioideae from the Mapimi Biosphere Reserve, southern Chihuahuan Desert, Durango, Mexico. For Cylindropuntia imbricata, addition of high concentrations (1,500 ppm) of gibberellic acid gave a 30% germination similar to the control; ...

In October 2006, months after shallow experimental ponds in the Salton Sea Basin were filled with water from the Alamo river and Salton Sea, fish were observed in several ponds, although inlets had been screened to exclude fish. During October 2007-November 2009, nine surveys were conducted using baited minnow traps ...
