Mesopredator Density Along an Urban to Rural Gradient
September 2020 - December 2024
- USGS Cooperative Research Units
Mesopredators play important ecological roles in most systems. This group of wildlife is often well-adapted to human development and their densities can vary according to the human-subsidized resources with trickle down effects on other animals. Here, we are using wildlife cameras to evaluate the density and community composition of mammalian mesopredators along an urban to rural gradient in northwest Arkansas.
