Hare's affairs: Lessons learnt from a noninvasive genetic monitoring for tracking mountain hare individuals

Laura Schenker, Kurt Bollmann, Maik Rehnus, Sabine Brodbeck & Felix Gugerli
Systematic monitoring of individuals and their abundance over time has become an important tool to provide information for conservation. For genetic monitoring studies, noninvasive sampling has emerged as a valuable approach, particularly so for elusive or rare animals. Here, we present the five-year results of an ongoing noninvasive genetic monitoring of mountain hares (Lepus timidus) in a protected area in the Swiss Alps. We used nuclear microsatellites and a sex marker to identify individuals and...
