Abstract

We dedicate this monograph to the work and life of Dr. David S. Maehr (1955–2008), the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Panther Team Leader from 1985–1994. His tenure on the project led to a multitude of contributions to our knowledge of panther natural history and conservation. His efforts, along with those of subsequent staff, have made the Florida panther project one of the more successful and productive conservation programs. We also dedicate this monograph to the immense contribution of Roy McBride, who initiated the pioneering fi eldwork to document panthers for the World Wildlife Fund in 1972. Roy has been the FWC houndsman since the project’s inception, and during his 38-year tenure, he has captured >200 different panthers for research. His experience and work ethic have been invaluable assets. Lastly, this monograph would not have been feasible without the herculean efforts of the long-lineage of dedicated wildlife biologists, from FWC and the U.S. Department of the Interior, who have played integral roles in preventing the extinction of the Florida panther since the project was initiated in 1981. “If we allow a self-sustaining population of panthers to exist in Florida, there may be some reason to think we can learn to manage ourselves as well.
