Stable home ranges can emerge in a generic forager using a two-part memory system and rules derived from optimal foraging theory. My objective was to evaluate the underlying assumptions of this promising theoretical model using data from two populations of elk. Using a spatiotemporal scan...
The relationship between individual performance and nonrandom use of habitat is fundamental to ecology; however, empirical tests of this relationship remain limited, especially for higher orders of selection like that of the home range. We quantified the association between lifetime reproductive...
Camera traps are an increasingly popular tool for wildlife management. Studies that use detection rates as a simple index of relative abundance assume that movement is not density-dependent. More complex techniques such as spatially-explicit capture recapture models, occupancy models, or...
Understanding how populations are structured and how they use natural and anthropogenic spaces is essential for effective wildlife management. A total of 510 barren-ground (Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus), 176 boreal (R. t. caribou), 11 mountain woodland (R. t. caribou), and 39 island (R. t....
Walking in Their Footsteps: New Approaches to Identify Behavioural Processes and Define Home Ranges Using Animal Movement DataDownload
Animal movement and space-use patterns influence the distribution and abundance of species, predator-prey interactions, and many other ecological processes. Different approaches are used to study individual's space-use strategies and each approach suffers from unique challenges. The mechanistic...
