Record #188776:

Mink prey diversity correlates with mink-muskrat dynamics / C.J. Shier, M.S. Boyce.

Title: Mink prey diversity correlates with mink-muskrat dynamics / C.J. Shier, M.S. Boyce.
Author(s): Shier, C. J.
Boyce, M. S.
Date: 2009.
In: Journal of Mammalogy. (2009.), Vol. 90(4) (2009)
Abstract: Discusses historic fur returns from Hudson's Bay Company posts in north-western Canada which reveal periodic oscillations in mink (Mustela vison) harvests lagging 2-3 years behind oscillations in muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus) harvests, as would be expected in predator-prey interaction. Toward central and eastern Canada, strength of interaction between time series of harvests of mink and muskrats weakens link and lag between species decreases to 1 and 0 years respectively. Tests hypothesis that gradient in mink-muskrat interactions is result of decreased dependency of mink on muskrats in areas where mink have access to alternative prey.
