Synanthropes
Cloe

Vancouver, WA

#1 Apr 30, 2011
Greetings, I'm a cartoonist with a web comic about urban wildlife (specifically North American so far) and I'm having trouble finding a decent set of info on synanthropic species, both how a species becomes classified as a synanthope and what the unifying characteristics among synanthropes are. I know proximity to humans and dependence on settlements is part of it, but why would lice, pigeons and roaches be synathropic, but raccoons, cats and dogs not be?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
