Disrupting herd migration boosts small carnivores

The important role of small carnivores (mesopredators) is being increasingly recognised in a variety of ecosystems, with negative impacts on biodiversity often being reported where mesopredator numbers are left unchecked. This generally occurs (and is studied) in systems where there have been changes in the numbers of big, apex predators. A new study by John-Andre Henden and colleagues from Norway published recently in Journal of … Continue reading Disrupting herd migration boosts small carnivores
