  • How Tire Shredding Protects Wildlife

    One of the most revolutionary inventions in the history of mankind was the wheel, and the best upgrade to that invention was the rubber tire, which overcame the limitations of wooden or metal wheels and made it possible to have smooth rides at fast speeds. However, there is a significant drawback to using rubber tires: eventually, they get too worn out to be useful as tires anymore and have to ...

  • An in vitro method for determining the bioaccessibility of pharmaceuticals in wildlife

    Wildlife can be exposed to human pharmaceuticals via prey that have accumulated the compounds from wastewater, surface water, sediment and soil. One factor affecting internal absorption of pharmaceuticals is bioaccessibility, the proportion of the compound that enters solution in the gastrointestinal tract. Currently, the bioaccessibility of most pharmaceuticals in prey remains unknown for ...

  • Using sparse dose‐response data for wildlife risk assessment

    Hazard quotients based on a point‐estimate comparison of exposure to a Toxicity Reference Value (TRV) are commonly used to characterize risks for wildlife. Quotients may be appropriate for screening‐level assessments, but should be avoided in detailed assessments because they provide little insight regarding the likely magnitude of effects and associated uncertainty. To better characterize ...

  • Efforts to standardize wildlife toxicity values remain unrealized

    Wildlife toxicity reference values (TRVs) are routinely used during screening level and baseline ecological risk assessments (ERAs). Risk assessment professionals often adopt TRVs from published sources to expedite risk analyses. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) developed Ecological Soil Screening Levels (Eco‐SSLs) to provide a source of TRVs that would improve ...

  • Case Note: Bats, Badgers, Beeching and Busways - A Disturbing Combination

    INTRODUCTION In both European and English law, provision for nature conservation is broadly divided into measures for the protection of species and measures for the protection of habitats. This case concerns the application of the species protection provisions of the EC Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC ('the Directive') as transposed in the Conservation Regulations. This is the first case in ...

  • Using reflection documents to assess student learning

    Traditional assessment methods such as tests and essays may not be adequate to evaluate students’ ability to solve problems and think critically. I developed a qualitative assessment technique for a junior-level Wildlife Management Techniques course that incorporated written responses in a pre- and post-course reflection exercise. I provided the students with three reflection documents: (1) an ...

  • Exploratory co-management interventions in Kuiburi National Park, Central Thailand, including human-elephant conflict mitigation
