      Arnemo, Jon Martin; Evans, Alina L.; Ahlqvist, Per; Segerström, Peter; Liberg, Olof (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Twenty-eight anesthetic events were carried out on 24 free-ranging Scandinavian gray wolves (Canis lupus) by darting from a helicopter with 5 mg medetomidine and 250 mg ketamine during winter in 2002 and 2003. Mean6SD ...
    • Genomic consequences of intensive inbreeding in an isolated wolf population 

      Kardos, Marty; Åkesson, Mikael; Fountain, Toby; Flagstad, Øystein; Liberg, Olof; Olason, Pall; Sand, Håkan; Wabakken, Petter; Wikenros, Camilla; Ellegren, Hans (Journal article, 2017)
      Inbreeding (mating between relatives) is a major concern for conservation as it decreases the fitness of offspring and can increase the extinction risk of populations. While pedigrees have traditionally been used to measure ...
    • Let’s stay together? Intrinsic and extrinsic factors involved in pair bond dissolution in a recolonizing wolf population 

      Milleret, Cyril; Wabakken, Petter; Liberg, Olof; Åkesson, Mikael; Flagstad, Øystein; Andreassen, Harry Peter; Sand, Håkan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      For socially monogamous species, breeder bond dissolution has important consequences for population dynamics, but the extent to which extrinsic or intrinsic population factors causes pair dissolution remain poorly understood, ...
    • Monitoring of wolves in Scandinavia 

      Liberg, Olof; Aronson, Åke; Sand, Håkan; Wabakken, Petter; Maartmann, Erling; Svensson, Linn; Åkesson, Mikael (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The Scandinavian wolf population is jointly monitored by Norwegian and Swedish authorities. Monitoring is made annually. Wolves are classified in different categories. Family groups ( 3 animals sharing a territory), ...
    • Predator-dependent functional response in wolves: from food limitation to surplus killing 

      Zimmermann, Barbara; Sand, Håkan; Wabakken, Petter; Liberg, Olof; Andreassen, Harry Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      The functional response of a predator describes the change in per capita kill rate to changes in prey density. This response can be influenced by predator densities, giving a predator-dependent functional response. In ...
    • Sarcoptic mange in the Scandinavian wolf Canis lupus population 

      Fuchs, Boris; Zimmermann, Barbara; Wabakken, Petter; Bornstein, Set; Månsson, Johan; Evans, Alina; Liberg, Olof; Sand, Håkan; Kindberg, Jonas; Ågren, Erik O.; Arnemo, Jon Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)

    • Shoot, shovel and shut up: cryptic poaching slows restoration of a large carnivore in Europe 

      Liberg, Olof; Chapron, Guillaume; Wabakken, Petter; Pedersen, Hans Christian; Hobbs, N. Thompson; Sand, Håkan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Poaching is a widespread and well-appreciated problem for the conservation of many threatened species. Because poaching is illegal, there is strong incentive for poachers to conceal their activities, and consequently, ...
    • Ulven som rovdyr på klauvvilt i Skandinavia
