  1. pmc Stochastic predation events and population persistence in bighorn sheep
    Marco Festa-Bianchet
    Université de Sherbrooke Département de biologie Sherbrooke, Quebec J1K 2R1, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 273:1537-43. 2006
    ..We suggest that such processes may be common. In such cases, predator-prey equilibria may only occur at large geographical and temporal scales, and are unlikely with increasing habitat fragmentation...
  2. doi Temperature constraints on foraging behaviour of male Alpine ibex (Capra ibex) in summer
    Jean François Aublet
    Departement de Biologie, Universite de Sherbrooke, 2500 boul de l Universite, Sherbrooke, QC, J1K2R1, Canada
    Oecologia 159:237-47. 2009
    ..Larger males may be more sensitive to temperature and solar radiation, or may have more flexibility in allocating time to different activities, given their lower relative energetic requirements...
  3. ncbi Using reproductive value to estimate key parameters in density-independent age-structured populations
    Steinar Engen
    Department of Mathematical Sciences, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, N 7491 Trondheim, Norway
    J Theor Biol 244:308-17. 2007
    ..We illustrate the method by estimating the long-run growth rate and the environmental variance in an exponentially growing population of Bighorn Sheep...

    Jan Schipper
    International Union for Conservation of Nature IUCN Species Programme, IUCN, 28 Rue Mauverney, 1196 Gland, Switzerland
    Science 322:225-30. 2008
    ..Marine mammals are also disproportionately poorly known. These data are made freely available to support further scientific developments and conservation action...
  6. pmc Quantitative genetics and sex-specific selection on sexually dimorphic traits in bighorn sheep
    Jocelyn Poissant
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T6G 2E9
    Proc Biol Sci 275:623-8. 2008
    ..The absence of detectable sexually antagonistic selection suggests that currently there are no sexual conflicts at loci influencing horn volume and body mass...
  7. ncbi Sex- and age-specific survival of the highly dimorphic Alpine ibex: evidence for a conservative life-history tactic
    Carole Toïgo
    Office National de la Chasse et de la Faune Sauvage, 5 allée de Bethléem, Z I Mayencin, 38610 Gieres, France
    J Anim Ecol 76:679-86. 2007
    ..Male ibex differ from similar-sized herbivores by showing a nearly indeterminate growth in horn size and body mass. By surviving to an advanced age, males may enjoy high reproductive success because of their large size...

    Nathalie Pettorelli
    Département de biologie and Centre d études nordiques, Universite Laval, Quebec G1K 7P4, Canada

    David W Coltman
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, T6G 2E9, Canada
    Evolution 59:1372-82. 2005
    ..Trade-offs in the form of negative genetic or phenotypic correlations among the traits we have measured do not appear to constrain the potential for evolution in this population...
  10. ncbi Undesirable evolutionary consequences of trophy hunting
    David W Coltman
    Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield S10 2TN, UK
    Nature 426:655-8. 2003
    ..Declines in mean breeding values for weight and horn size therefore occurred in response to unrestricted trophy hunting, resulting in the production of smaller-horned, lighter rams, and fewer trophies...
