Data from: Evaluating noninvasive genetic sampling techniques to estimate large carnivore abundance

Matthew A. Mumma, Chris Zieminski, Todd Fuller, Shane P. Mahoney, Lisette P. Waits & Todd K. Fuller
Monitoring large carnivores is difficult because of intrinsically low densities and can be dangerous if physical capture is required. Noninvasive genetic sampling (NGS) is a safe and cost-effective alternative to physical capture. We evaluated the utility of two NGS methods (scat detection dogs and hair sampling) to obtain genetic samples for abundance estimation of coyotes, black bears and Canada lynx in three areas of Newfoundland, Canada. We calculated abundance estimates using program capwire, compared sampling...
