      Elfström, Marcus; Davey, Marie Louise; Zedrosser, Andreas; Müller, Martin; De Barba, Marta; Støen, Ole-Gunnar; Miquel, Christian; Taberlet, Pierre; Hackländer, Klaus; Swenson, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Large carnivores that approach human settlements are usually considered a threat to human property and safety. The prevailing paradigm, that such ‘problem’ animals approach settlements in search of food, ignores their ...
    • Faecal spectroscopy: a practical tool to assess diet quality in an opportunistic omnivore 

      Steyaert, Sam; Hütter, Franziska J.; Elfström, Marcus; Zedrosser, Andreas; Hackländer, Klaus; Le, Minh Hung; Windisch, Wilhelm M.; Swenson, Jon; Isaksson, Tomas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Faecal indices of dietary quality can provide useful knowledge about the general ecology of a species, but only if the measurements are accurate and the results are interpreted with caution. In this article, we evaluated ...

      Steyaert, Sam; Reusch, Christine; Brunberg, Sven; Swenson, Jon; Hackländer, Klaus; Zedrosser, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013-10-02)
      Behavioural strategies to reduce predation risk can incur costs, which are often referred to as risk effects. A common strategy to avoid predation is spatio-temporal avoidance of predators, in which prey typically trade ...
    • The Use of Acceleration to Code for Animal Behaviours; A Case Study in Free-Ranging Eurasian Beavers Castor fiber 

      Graf, Patricia Maria; Wilson, Rory Paul; Qasem, Lama; Hackländer, Klaus; Rosell, Frank (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-28)
      Recent technological innovations have led to the development of miniature, accelerometercontaining electronic loggers which can be attached to free-living animals. Accelerometers provide information on both body posture ...
