Title: A longevity record for Canada lynx, Lynx canadensis, in western Montana

Author: Kolbe, Jay A.; Squires, John R.;

Date: 2006

Source: Western North American Naturalist. 66(4): 535-536.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)


The Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) was listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (USDI Fish and Wildlife Service 2000) in 2000 and is a species of conservation concern in the United States. New insights into the basic demography of southern lynx populations are needed. Data describing population age structures, including maximum ages, will allow biologists to better evaluate how well spatially isolated lynx populations can withstand cyclic or stochastic environmental variations, which may temporarily depress reproduction. Longevity data may also allow researchers to determine the probability that lynx will successfully recolonize unoccupied habitat patches.

Keywords: Canada lynx, Lynx canadensis, longevity, demography
