The red wolf (Canis rufus) is a keystone species because of its important ecological role as a top predator. Its restoration to historic ranges may help to promote ecosystem integrity, balance, diversity and health. However, as already outlined in the 2007 United States Fish and Wildlife Service Red Wolf Recovery Progress Report, at least two additional reintroduction sites within the species' historic ranges are still required to support viable populations of red wolves. This thesis research aimed to contribute to the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan by identifying and evaluating potential sites within the Daniel Boone National Forest in eastern Kentucky for the reestablishment of red wolves. In previous wolf habitat prediction models, road density served as the criteria for suitability. Researchers calculated simple road densities; however, the logistic regression models thus derived did not accurately predict wolf occupation. Roads with higher traffic volumes and areas with greater road densities should, in theory, pose greater risks to wolf mortality, and simple road density may not be an adequate measure to such purpose. This research, therefore, ranked roads by mortality risk and utilized kernel density estimation in Geographic Information Systems as a means to weight the road density and to predict suitable wolf habitat. This method may provide a better picture of the spatial reality of road influence. By using the red wolf habitat suitability model based on the rank class and kernel density estimation, nine potential restoration sites were predicted; whereas the suitability model based only on the simple density function failed to predict any sites. However, the results of this research are not final. The human and coyote factors remain unknown, and validation of the model is impractical due to the lack of data and time constraints. Yet, efforts such as field verification have been made in an attempt to validate the model. If data are available, follow-up studies in North Carolina may be a feasible measure to further test the model.

From Daniel Boone to Captain America

Genre: Social Science

From nineteenth-century American art and literature to comic books of the twentieth century and afterwards, Chad A. Barbour examines in From Daniel Boone to Captain America the transmission of the ideals and myths of the frontier and playing Indian in American culture. In the nineteenth century, American art and literature developed images of the Indian and the frontiersman that exemplified ideals of heroism, bravery, and manhood, as well as embodying fears of betrayal, loss of civilization, and weakness. In the twentieth century, comic books, among other popular forms of media, would inherit these images. The Western genre of comic books participated fully in the common conventions, replicating and perpetuating the myths and ideals long associated with the frontier in the United States. A fascination with Native Americans also emerged in comic books devoted to depicting the Indian past of the US In such stories, the Indian remains a figure of the past, romanticized as a lost segment of US history, ignoring contemporary and actual Native peoples. Playing Indian occupies a definite subgenre of Western comics, especially during the postwar period when a host of comics featuring a “white Indian” as the hero were being published. Playing Indian migrates into superhero comics, a phenomenon that heightens and amplifies the notions of heroism, bravery, and manhood already attached to the white Indian trope. Instances of superheroes like Batman and Superman playing Indian correspond with depictions found in the strictly Western comics. The superhero as Indian returned in the twenty-first century via Captain America, attesting to the continuing power of this ideal and image.
