Coyotes -- Canis latrans -- are a relatively recent arrival to eastern North America, appearing first in the region in noticeable numbers in the 1970s. They are a significant source of deer mortality and...

Changes in North American ecosystems over the past 150 years have caused coyotes to move from their native habitats in the plains and southwestern deserts of North America to habitats throughout the United States. In a new study, published Oct. 17 in the Journal of Mammalogy, researchers from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute´s Center for Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics used DNA from coyote scat (feces) to trace the route that led some of the animals to colonize in...

A new genetic study finds that wolves in the eastern United States and Canada are actually hybrids of gray wolves and coyotes, while the area's coyotes are wolf-coyote-dog hybrids, according to a recent Associated Press (AP) report. The research advances a long-standing debate over the origins of two endangered species -- the red wolf, Canis rufus, in North Carolina and the eastern Canadian wolf, Canis lycaon, in Ontario.   The author's of the current study concluded that these...

Study finds coyote densities more than 30 percent lower in wolf territory NEW YORK  -- While the wily coyote reigns as top dog in much of the country, it leads a nervous existence wherever it coexists with its larger relative, the wolf, according to a new study from the Wildlife Conservation Society. In fact, coyote densities are more than 30 percent lower in areas that they share with wolves. The paper, which appears in the most recent edition of the Journal of Animal Ecology, details...

The red wolf, Canis rufus is the most rare and most endangered of all wolves. It is thought that its original distribution included much of eastern North America. Red wolves were found from Pennsylvania in the east, Florida in the south, and Texas in the west. On the basis of further study, its historic range is now thought to have extended further north into the northeastern USA and extreme eastern Canada. In the last century habitat destruction and hybridization with coyotes have brought...
