AbstractAn observation of tracks made by Canada Lynx on the Chignecto Isthmus supports assumed use of this area between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia as a potential wildlife corridor. Use of the isthmus by lynx may facilitate gene flow between otherwise geographically separate populations in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
