Table 3 Outcome categories and corresponding descriptions

From: Outcomes of wildlife translocations in protected areas: what is the type and extent of existing evidence? A systematic map protocol

Outcome category Description Example references (from test list or scoping exercise)
Space use Studies measuring all movement/dispersal of translocated individuals. This will include notably home range measurements, or euclidean distance travelled [43]
Demography Studies outlining the changes in number of individuals, males/females, of the translocated population i.e. population growth overtime [44, 45]
Survival Studies illustrating precisely the proportion of individuals alive or level of mortality since translocation [46]
Reproduction Any impacts on reproduction, expressed by number of young born since translocation, or specifically the survival rate of offspring [47]
Feeding All impacts specifically on diet and feeding of translocated individuals. (Nb. cascade effects will not be included as an outcome) [48, 49]
Behaviour Studies measuring changes in terms of communication (e.g. vocal), social structure, or anti-predator behaviour i.e. stress/vigilance levels, of translocated individuals [50, 51]
Genetics Studies relating to the genetic structure of the translocated species [52]
Physiology All biological or physiological impacts measured at the molecular, cellular or organic level (e.g. hormone activity) [53]
