Abstract: The release of wild carnivores to native habitat has become an increasingly important method of re-establishing viable populations, but few guidelines have emerged to ensure that release success is maximized. Lynx may be an ideal carnivore for studying factors related to success of translocation, as relationships between lynx demographic parameters and densities of their main prey, snowshoe hares, are both closely associated and well studied. We mathematically modeled lynx reintroduction in order to predict which factors could play roles in determining release success. We examined deterministic, stochastic, and cyclic models of lynx-hare interactions, with parameter estimates derived from the literature. The functional relationship between various demographic attributes of lynx (productivity and survival of different-aged cohorts) and changing hare density was best represented by the logistic curve...
