Abstract

The relationship based on skull morphology of populations known as Canis latrans and C. niger in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas is considered. Available evidence indicates that C. niger has become extinct except in isolated areas of Louisiana. Elsewhere, C. latrans has replaced C. niger as a primary predator. Probable previous hybridization between C. latrans and C. niger is discussed.
