Bibliographical note

We thank the landowners and their agents who permitted fieldwork to take place and all respondents to the questionnaire survey. Neil Anderson, Robyn Cuthbertson, Monica Griffith, Andrew Harrington, Donald Malone, Jos Milner, Rob Needham, Roisin Campbell-Palmer, Alan Ross and Matthew Wilson assisted with fieldwork. Andrew Kitchener and Charlotte Wagner independently assessed pelage scores from camera trap images and from photographs of live-caught cats. Jenny Bryce, Alison Hester and Xavier Lambin provided useful comments that much improved the report.
