  11. Dear Colleagues, Most of you have probably heard about the explosive eruptions of La Soufriere Volcano on St. Vincent. They began on April 9th and have continued almost daily. The dome collapsed on April 12th and pyroclastic flows began. The volcano is decimating nearby towns, agriculture, and rivers, and has blanketed the entire country in ash. Right now the country is dealing with the humanitarian crises—evacuating people out of the danger zone and making sure that evacuees and all other residents have access to clean water and shelter. We have been in t

Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) Population Ecology and Interactions with Shorebirds on Fire Island, New York Virginia Tech Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation Many studies have shown that predation is a key determinant of piping plover reproductive output, and predator management often is used to improve piping plover breeding success. The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is a key predator in a number of piping plover nesting areas. Despite the recognition that predator management is an important part of piping plover management along the entire U.S. coast, there still are many gaps in our knowledge o
