Diameter and pH comparisons of coyote and red fox scats
Number of samples taken was dependent upon the size of each scat
pile--small piles were sampled once, medium piles twice, and large piles three times.
that contained more than one species from a particular group were scored as containing only a single occurrence of that group.
Bowyer and others (1983) showed similar results with raccoon making up less than 2% of total items found in coyote scats
in a state park in California.
By analyzing the prey content of scats
from undisturbed habitats, we can determine the preferred prey of carnivores.
This will be the largest deployment of SCATS
in the Northeast," explained Bob Ball, TransCore's managing director for the Northeast.
Project Officer, Elise Dewar, said that the Predator Scat
Survey would involve up to 300 sites across eastern Tasmania.
We detected no statistically significant correlation between number of scats
and lagomorphs or between number of scats
and small mammals within any stratum during any sampling period.
was sent to The Vincent Wildlife Trust as part of its research project Prospects for Pine Martens.
Marine mammal scientists, on the other hand, have relied upon the identification of otoliths recovered from scats
to identify the prey of pinnipeds (Brown and Mate, 1983; Beach et al.
(Sydney |Australia~ Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System) and the Autoscope video image processing system comprise the ATMS component.
Tim Fischer, TransCore's vice president for the southeast region, added, "What makes the SCATS
adaptive system appealing is that each corridor can be configured differently versus using the traditional time-based, or actuated signal controls.
We collected scats
along roads and trails, and at den and rendezvous sites.
Abstract--Examination of hard parts recovered from scats
(feces) is currently the most common method for determining the diet of pinnipeds.
The adaptive traffic control system known as SCATS
(Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System), operates in real-time to adjust signal timing in response to changes in traffic demand and system capacity, and provides immediate and historical traffic information.
