Post-weaning survival in kangaroos is high and constant until senescence: Implications for population dynamics

Rachel Bergeron, Gabriel Pigeon, David M. Forsyth, Wendy J. King & Marco Festa-Bianchet
Large herbivores typically have consistently high prime-aged adult survival and lower, more variable, juvenile and senescent survival. Many kangaroo populations undergo greater fluctuations in density than other large herbivores, but age- and sex-specific survival of kangaroos and their response to environmental variation remain poorly estimated. We used long-term capture-mark-recapture data on 920 individuals to investigate the survival component of eastern grey kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) population dynamics. Forage availability and population density were monitored quarterly and...
