Background information and definitions
Water, from natural or artificial sources, can be an important resource, shaping the distribution of wild mammals in arid areas. Fencing may be installed to protect these water sources from domestic or wild animals whilst still permitting entry of smaller mammals (e.g. Gaudioso Lacasa et al. 2010).
Gaudioso Lacasa V., Sánchez García-Abad C., Prieto Martín R., Bartolomé Rodríguez D.J., Pérez Garrido J.A. & Alonso de La Varga M.E. (2010) Small game water troughs in a Spanish agrarian pseudo steppe: visits and water site choice by wild fauna. European Journal of Wildlife Research, 56, 591–599.
