What effect do humans have on Canadian lynx?
Canadian lynx have been exploited for furs since the seventeenth century. With restrictions on trade in furs of large cats in the 1960's and '70's, and subsequent reduction of ocelot and margay populations by fur trappers, increased attention has been focused on the pelts of Canadian lynx.
Yes and no. 'Lynx' is a genus of cat. There are four species in this genus. From largest to smallest. Lynx lynx - Asian lynx Lynx canadensis - Canadian lynx Lynx pardinus - Iberian lynx Lynx rufus - Red lynx (aka bobcat) I'm assuming by 'lynx' you mean the Canadian lynx. The bobcat is a separate species from the Canadian lynx. They share the same genus/family of cats, but they are not the same species.
It is called exactly that. The Canadian Lynx or Canada Lynx. It's closest relative is the Eurasian Lynx (Lynx Lynx) It's binomial name is Lynx canadensis. It's sub-specie names are recognized as Lynx canadensis canadensis, mollipilosis, and subsolanus. It's scientific classification is Animalia, Chordata, Mammalia, Carnivora, Felidae, Lynx, Canadensis.
