As residential development expands into natural areas, wildlife conflicts often increase. In South Carolina, alligator attacks have been rare, but the risk is growing. In the August issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers looked at a novel approach to modifying alligator behavior. Alligators that have been captured and released—or have witnessed others being captured—were more likely to avoid humans later.

Other articles look at walrus abundance, helicopter counts to estimate Himalayan tahr, the association of antler asymmetry with hoof disease in elk, and more.
