Can evolutionary theories of dispersal and senescence predict postrelease survival, dispersal, and body condition of a reintroduced threatened mammal?

Robinson, Natasha; Blanchard, Wade; MacGregor, Chris; Brewster, Robert; Dexter, Nick; Lindenmayer, David B


1. Theories of dispersal and senescence (or aging) predict that dispersal, and ongoing survival and body condition, are influenced by evolutionary drivers, along with intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Such theories are relevant to translocations of animals where high mortality, loss of body condition, and dispersal beyond the area of release are commonly reported. However, these theories have rarely been tested using data from translocations. 2. We explore whether theories of dispersal and...[Show more]
