Large carnivores are experiencing range contraction and population declines globally. Prey depletion due to illegal offtake is considered a major contributor, but the effects of prey depletion on large carnivore demography are rarely tested. We measured African lion density and tested the factors that affect survival using mark-recapture models fit to six years of data from known individuals in Kafue National Park (KNP), Zambia. KNP is affected by prey depletion, particularly for large herbivores that...

Camera trap survey of jaguars from Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary in Belize

Greg Distiller, David Borchers, Rebecca Foster & Bart Harmsen
These data are from a camera trap survey of jaguars in Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary in Belize that ran for a 6 month period from August 2013 until February 2014. The associated manuscript contains analyses of these data using continuous-time spatial capture-recapture models, and demonstrates how one can make inference about animal activity patterns. The data include 287 detections of 19 individual male jaguars, and 44 detections of 8 individual female jaguars.
