Understanding interactions among bobcats (Lynx rufus) may lend insight into less understood life history traits of the bobcat and improve management of the species. Moreover, data from manipulative experiments pertaining to bobcat ecology are largely absent from the scientific literature. Therefore, we investigated bobcat spatial organization and habitat use after an experimental population Cited by: 6. Bobcat (Lynx rufus) spatial ecology and harvest in Minnesota [dissertation].

The distribution and abundance of food resources is a major factor influencing animal populations. I studied the effect of a roe and red deer population decline on diet composition, home range size and foraging pattern in the Eurasian lynxLynx lynxLynx lynx.   We released bobcats (Lynx rufus) on Cumberland Island, Georgia during and as part of a cooperative effort to restore an extirpated predator to the collected data on prey use and prey abundance three times a year during 2 y following the initial bobcat releases. We tested four hypotheses concerning bobcat prey selection: (1) use of a prey species was closely associated Cited by:

In these habitats, bobcats set up their territories. Male bobcats have larger territories than females. But territory size also increases depending upon the season. According to a study done here in Idaho, winter bobcat territories are four times larger than summer territories. In winter, food can be scarce so bobcats need larger areas in which. v Predator-Prey Workshop: Elk and Predation in Idaho: Does One Size Fit All? harvest increased through the late s, peaking in when animals were reported, then declined to in (Nadeau b).

Abstract: Bobeat (Felis rufus) population responses to exploitation and a decline in prey populations were studied in southeastern Idaho from January through December Reproduction and death rates were compared between a harvested population in the Box Canyon region of the Big Lost River and an unharvested population on the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL).

[Steven T Knick; Wildlife Society.; Radioecology and Ecology Program (Idaho National Engineering Laboratory)]. Southeastern Idaho studies found bobcats preyed primarily on jackrabbits, but switched to small mammals when rabbit numbers declined. They have been known to prey on larger mammals such as small pronghorns or deer, but only occasionally.

determinant of bobcat core area location. In bobcat home ranges with abundant prey, core areas occurred where coy-ote use was low, but shifted to areas intensively used by coyotes when prey declined. High spatial variability in basal prey abundance allowed some bobcats to avoid coy-otes while at the same time others were forced into more risky areas.
