Survival of postfledging female american black ducks

, : Survival of postfledging female american black ducks. Journal of Wildlife Management 55(4): 573-580

We equipped 106 hatching-year (HY), female, black ducks (Anas rubripes) with transmitters during 1985-87 and monitored survival from late August to mid-December on a lightly hunted area on the Maine [USA] - New Brunswick [Canada] border. The 1985-87 estimate of survival (hunting losses included) was 0.593, and when losses from hunting were censored it was 0.694. Survival in August-September was 0.987; by 31 October survival declined to 0.885, and by 30 November it was 0.718. Most nonhunting mortality was caused by predators (21/41, 53.2%); there were 14 deaths (34.1%) from mammals or unknown predators and 7 (17.1%) from raptors. Hunting caused 13 (31.7%) deaths. Ducks with lowest mass had the lowest survival. The estimate of survival for postfledging female black ducks, when multiplied with interval survival rates for hunting, winter, and breeding periods, produced an annual survival estimate of 0.262, about 12% lower than that (0.38) based on analysis of banding data.

To investigate the effect of high-dose cisplatin (40 mg/m2 daily for 5 days), 51Cr-EDTA clearance was used as a measure of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). 51Cr-EDTA clearance decreased significantly from 109 +/- 3 ml/min * 1.73 m2 to 68 +/- 3 ml...
