    Oecologia 138:465-74. 2004
    ..The role of the social hierarchy of males and females, mating history, and paternity in affecting the risk of infanticide and foraging decisions of female brown bears merit further investigation...

    Jamie R Crait
    Department of Zoology and Physiology, University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY 82071, USA
    J Exp Biol 215:256-63. 2012
    ..Our results suggest that recent disruptions to the Yellowstone Lake food web could be detrimental to otters because at this high elevation, constraints on diving may limit their ability to switch to prey in a deep-water environment...

    PLoS ONE 8:e77642. 2013
    ..Based on our results we advocate the preferential use of linear sensors where canopy openness is low, canopies are tall, and leaf distributions are clumped and angles are variable, as is common in the conifer forests of coastal Alaska. ..
