Abstract

We show that the extirpation of wolves throughout North America has caused a continent-wide shift in coyote and red fox densities. To reverse this human induced cascade, wolves may need to occur continuously over large spatial areas. This presents a challenge because wolves are frequently persecuted due to human-wildlife conflicts.
