As the climate continues to change, it's unclear to what extent different species will be able to keep pace with altered temperatures and shifted seasons. Living organisms are the survivors of previous environmental changes and might therefore be expected to adapt, but are there limits? According to research to be published in the Open Access journal PLOS Biology on April 1, some species may be much less able to cope with the effects of climate change than previously thought. The study, by...

Traffic accidents involving wildlife are on the rise in Europe. The establishment of a time pattern for the accidents could be useful for increasing safety and preventing human and animal deaths. On the basis of this objective, a team of researchers have established at what time, on what day of the week and in which month accidents involving boar and roe deer are most likely to take place. Car accidents involving animals are a serious and growing problem in Europe. They pose a risk for...

Current approaches to deer management are failing to control a serious and growing problem, according to new research by the University of East Anglia (UEA). Researchers drove more than 1140 miles at night and used thermal imaging and night vision equipment to quantify the population of roe and muntjac deer in a unique study spanning the border of Norfolk and Suffolk. The results, published today in the Journal of Wildlife Management, show for the first time that present management...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The proliferation of roe deer in the U.K. appears to be impacting woodland ecosystems, according to a new study from researchers in at Durham University. After visiting sites and collecting data over a span of two years, the ecologists found that the area with the largest roe deer population also had the lowest level of vegetation cover and bird population. It is the first study on U.K. deer with this type of precision and scope....

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from a group of British scientists has provided a more detailed look into the selective diet of wolves living in northwestern Italy. Wolves are an apex predator across Europe and the new insights could translate into more informed conservation strategies for policymakers as well as better protective measures for the region´s livestock industry, which can be affected by wolf predation. According to the...

Mediterranean landscapes have undergone great change in recent decades, but species have adapted to this, at least in the case of roe deer, Spanish ibex, red deer and wild boar. This has been shown by Spanish researchers who have analyzed the effects of changes in land use on the past, present and future distribution of these species. "In the last few decades there has been an increase in the area of distribution of wild ungulates", explains Pelayo Acevedo, lead author of the study and...

A Spanish researcher has analyzed the preferences of wolves from the north east of the Iberian Peninsula to demonstrate that, in reality, their favorite prey are roe deer, deer and wild boar, ahead of domestic ruminants (sheep, goats, cows and horses). Wolves (Canis lupus) have been pursued by humans for centuries due to their supposed "addiction" to livestock. However, the study by Isabel Barja, sole author and researcher at the Universidad Aut³noma de Madrid [Autonomous University of...
