Dynamic occupancy models can help predict the spread of disease among species, but they had never been used to forecast the spread of chronic wasting disease among white-tailed deer. In the September issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers used a dynamic occupancy model to estimate the persistence, localized spread and long-distance spread of CWD in Wisconsin.
Other articles look at the importance of flood irrigation for foraging colonial waterbirds, the roosting ecology of Gould’s wild turkeys in southeastern Arizona, short-term responses of riparian salamander populations to wildfire in the Southern Appalachians, and more.
