The Biology and Conservation of Wild Canids

Eli Geffen

Oxford University Press

While the morphology typical of canids adapts them to endurance running, and consequently to life in open habitats, a few species have specialized to other habitats such as rainforests, or even to climbing trees or cliffs. The cliff-dwelling Blanford's fox (Vulpes cana) is one of these exceptional canid species. This chapter presents an overview of the Blanford's fox's phylogeny and taxonomic status, recent distributional changes, the behavioural ecology of a population studied in Israel, and its conservation status.

Keywords:   Blanford's fox, Vulpes cana, phylogeny, taxonomy, distribution, behavioural ecology, conservation, Israel
