Harvest: A Generalized Animal Population Growth Simulation, David Stewart, Charles Amlaner, Claude Barnett Jun 1992

Harvest: A Generalized Animal Population Growth Simulation, David Stewart, Charles Amlaner, Claude Barnett

Charles J. Amlaner

We present a general purpose discrete-event, stochastic simulation model (HARVEST) which can be used to model the population growth of a wide variety of animal species. A complete example is given with validation, to show how it can be used for managing the Eastern wild turkey. The structure of the simulation system (micro Passim) is described, and the implementation of the model is discussed as an example of how the process-interaction simulation protocol may be used to represent a complex natural system. The model is designed to be used by state and federal wildlife agencies for exploration of the effects ...

Turning Eggs To Fossils: A Natural Experiment In Taphonomy, James Hayward, Charles Amlaner, Karen Young May 1989

Turning Eggs To Fossils: A Natural Experiment In Taphonomy, James Hayward, Charles Amlaner, Karen Young

Charles J. Amlaner

Ashfall from Mount St. Helens' May 18, 1980 eruption covered eggs and nests of two species of colonial, ground-nesting gulls. While some members of both species excavated their eggs from beneath the ash, most eggs and nests remained buried. One year after the ashfall, habitats known to contain pre-ashfall nests were transected and the ash layer was measured and removed. Eggs, nests, and associated materials were counted. Entire hollow eggshells and eggshell fragments were found, as well as rodent bones and teeth, bird bones, beetle carapaces, and vegetation. No fetal bones were found with eggs. Fossilization potential for nests and ...

Thermoregulation And Sleep: Effects Of Thermal Stress On Sleep Patterns Of Glaucous-Winged Gulls (Larus Glaucescens), Mark Opp, Nigel Ball, Don Miller, Charles Amlaner Jul 1987

Thermoregulation And Sleep: Effects Of Thermal Stress On Sleep Patterns Of Glaucous-Winged Gulls (Larus Glaucescens), Mark Opp, Nigel Ball, Don Miller, Charles Amlaner

Charles J. Amlaner

1. To determine effects of thermal stress on avian sleep patterns, incubating Glaucous-winged gulls were subjected to conditions of heat loss and heat gain via conduction from hollow copper eggs.

2. Heated manipulations resulted in significant reductions in sleep and rest relative to controls, whereas cooled manipulations had little effect.

3. The resilience of sleep to thermal stress is greater than that of rest. We suggest that the incompatability of sleep with conductive processes to off-load heat from the eggs is responsible in this case.

4. Pant Sleep, the behaviour in which birds appear to maintain some the benefits of ...
