USGS at The Wildlife Society: From sea-ice change to contaminants to predators and prey

ir gear at all times, and to stand their ground during bear encounters. Consequently, the number of bear-human conflicts decreased. Research is now completed and the park is incorporating findings into new management policies and a bear management plan.

Declining northern bobwhites in a longleaf pine landscape: how movement affects survival:

Bobwhite populations and fire-maintained longleaf pine forests have been declining for at least the last 4 decades. We studied survival and movement of northern bobwhites in fire-maintained longleaf pine forests in south-central Alabama. We found that daily survival probabilities of bobwhites were most influenced by daily movements and that the farther they had to move, the more their survival rates decreased. In turn, daily mobility of bobwhites varied with respect to the time that had passed since the last fire, season of year, and whether or not an individual was near a wildlife opening. These findings indicate that longleaf pine forests managed with growing season fire and provision of unburned areas interspersed within forests will lead to increased survival of bobwhites. James B. Grand, Session 17, Monday, Sept. 25, 9:20 a.m.

The Farm Bill and breeding birds: not the same-old, same-old. Numerous studies have demonstrated the enormous value in terms of wildlife habitat that the Conservation Reserve Program provides. Much policy was based on research conducted in the early years of CRP. USGS scientists Douglas Johnson and Lawrence Igl use results from a long-term study in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota to show that bird use of CRP fields has changed dramatically during the past 17 years. Reasons for these changes involve variation in precipitation, ecological succession, and management. Decisions should be based on current information; the use of "old" data may lead to decisio
