  • Parker, Daniel M.; Watermeyer, Jessica P.; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Beverley, Grant; Marnewick, Kelly (Inter Research, 2018-07-10)
    The survival of wildlife ultimately relies on its acceptability to humans. The African wild dog Lycaon pictus is an endangered species that often comes into conflict with humans. Currently, the only viable population in ...
  • Hayward, Matt W.; Callen, Alex; Allen, Benjamin L.; Ballard, Guy; Broekhuis, Femke; Bugir, Cassandra K.; Clarke, Rohan H.; Clulow, John; Clulow, Simon; Daltry, Jennifer C.; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Fleming, Peter J.S.; Griffin, Andrea S.; Howell, Lachlan G.; Kerley, Graham I.H.; Klop-Toker, Kaya L.; Legge, Sarah; Major, Tom; Meyer, Ninon; Montgomery, Robert A.; Moseby, Katherine; Parker, Daniel M.; Periquet, Stephanie; Read, John; Scanlon, Robert J.; Seeto, Rebecca G.Y.; Shuttleworth, Craig M.; Somers, Michael J.; Tamessar, Cottrell T.; Tuft, Katherine; Upton, Rose M.O.; Valenzuela-Molina, Marcia; Wayne, Adrian; Witt, Ryan R.; Wuster, Wolfgang (Wiley, 2019-08)
    Compassionate conservation focuses on 4 tenets: first, do no harm; individuals matter; inclusivity of individual animals; and peaceful coexistence between humans and animals. Recently, compassionate conservation has been ...
  • Marneweck, Courtney; Becker, P.A.; Beverley, G.; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Du Plessis, C.; Forssman, K.R. (Katherine); Graf, J.; Gusset, M.; Hofmeyr, M.; Kelly, C.; Kilian, P.J.; Marchal, A.F.J.; Marneweck, David G.; Marnewick, K.; Owen, C.; Postiglione, G.; Slotow, R.; Somers, Michael J.; Szykman, G.M.; Van Dyk, G.; Whittington-Jones, B.; Parker, D.M. (Wiley, 2019-10)
    Social integration is an important factor when reintroducing group‐living species, but examples of the formation of social groups before reintroduction are largely lacking. African wild dogs Lycaon pictus are endangered, ...
  • Collinson, Wendy J.; Parker, Daniel M.; Bernard, Ric T.F.; Reilly, Brian K.; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T. (Wiley, 2019-12)
    Few studies have investigated the factors that influence roadkill occurrence in developing countries. In 2013, we monitored a 100‐km section of the road (comprising the R572 and R521 regional highways and the D2662) that ...
  • Child, Matthew F.; Selier, S.A. Jeanetta; Radloff, Frans G.T.; Taylor, W. Andrew; Hoffmann, Michael; Nel, Lizanne; Power, R. John; Birss, Coral; Okes, Nicola C.; Peel, Michael J.; Mallon, David; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T. (Wiley, 2019-10)
    As landscapes continue to fall under human influence through habitat loss and fragmentation, fencing is increasingly being used to mitigate anthropogenic threats and enhance the commercial value of wildlife. Subsequent ...
  • Marneweck, Courtney J.; Marchal, Antoine F.J.; Marneweck, David G.; Beverley, Grant; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Parker, Dan M. (Southern African Wildlife Management Association, 2019)
    Reintroductions are recognized tools for species recovery. However, operations are costly, difficult to implement, and failures are common and not always understood. Their success for group-living species depends on ...
  • Collinson, W.J.; Marneweck, Courtney; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T. (Wiley, 2019-08)
    Social media discussions highlight public concern for wildlife‐vehicle collisions (WVCs) inside protected areas. Using a quasi‐experimental field trial, we investigated factors affecting the likelihood of WVCs within ...
  • Marneweck, C.; Marneweck, David G.; Van Schalkwyk, O.L.; Beverley, G.; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Parker, D.M. (Springer, 2019-11)
    There are several hypotheses that could explain territory size in mammals, including the resource dispersion hypothesis (RDH), the intruder pressure hypothesis (IPH), and the intraguild predation hypothesis (IGPH). In this ...
  • Collinson, Wendy; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Roxburgh, Lizanne; Van der Ree, Rodney (Frontiers Media, 2019-12-13)
    Across Africa, transport infrastructure, including roads, is being built in over 30 planned development corridors that are likely to have major impacts on remaining natural habitats and associated biodiversity. Linked ...
  • Taylor, Andrew; Balfour, Dave; Brebner, Diane Kirsty; Coetzee, Rynette; Davies-Mostert, Harriet T.; Lindsey, Peter Andrew; Shaw, Jo; 't Sas-Rolfes, Michael (Elsevier, 2017-12)
    African rhino populations are under severe threat from poachers, who kill rhinos to obtain horn for illegal trade. Over the 9-year period between 2008 and 2016, an estimated 7124 rhinos were poached in Africa, with the ...
