Everybody loses: intraspecific competition induces tragedy of the commons in Allenby's gerbilsInterference competition may lead to a tragedy of the commons in which individuals driven by self‐interest reduce the fitness of the entire group. We investigated this hypothesis in Allenby's gerbils, Gerbillus andersoni allenbyi , by comparing foraging behaviors of single vs. pairs of gerbils....

A chance for lasting survival: ecology and behavior of wild giant pandas. Smithsonian Institution Scholarly Press, Washington, D.C. xx þ 349 p. $39.95, ISBN: 978-1-935623-17-5 (alk. paper).
Joint species distribution models with species correlations and imperfect detectionSpatiotemporal patterns in biological communities are typically driven by environmental factors and species interactions. Spatial data from communities are naturally described by stacking models for all species in the community....
The seasonal energetic landscape of an apex marine carnivore, the polar bear…In recent decades, the Southern Beaufort Sea subpopulation of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) has developed a divergent movement strategy in response to diminishing sea ice where the majority of the subpopulation (73–85%) stays on the sea ice in summer and the remaining bears move to land…. We used GPS satellite collars with tri-axial accelerometers and conductivity sensors to measure the location, behavior, and energy expenditure of five adult female polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea across seasons of sea ice breakup and minimum extent…
