My research involves the collection of data from GPS radio-collars, genetic profiles, and carcass necropsies to investigate the population dynamics and demography of an eastern coyote population in an agricultural-dominated region of southeastern Ontario. Specifically, my research focuses on how eastern coyote populations respond to harvest, and will include the assessment of reproductive compensation and re-population by immigration. This study will include investigations of social organization, territory size and configuration, dispersal, transient movement patterns, and livestock depredation.
