Patch characteristics and domestic dogs differentially affect carnivore space use in fragmented landscapes in southern Chile
Description: This article's aim is to determine whether (a) the spatial use of domestic dogs increases with habitat destruction, and (b) domestic dogs and habitat destruction drive the spatial use of native carnivores in a heavily degraded agricultural landscape. Conclusions highlight that domestic dog occupancy was positively correlated with habitat loss and future conditions of increased fragmentation and habitat loss will likely increase the potential contact between domestic dogs and native carnivores.
