Spatial dynamics of sympatric canids: Modeling the impact of coyotes on red wolf recovery

Authors: James D. Roth, Dennis L. Murray, Todd D. Steury

From Ecological Modeling

We built a stochastic simulation model (using data collected from a recovering red wolf population in northeastern North Carolina as well as from the literature) to examine spatial dynamics of sympatric red wolves and coyotes (independent of habitat influences) and to elucidate the potential role of coyotes on wolf recovery and reintroduction success.
