The purpose of our study is to show how ecologists' interpretation of habitat selection by grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) is altered by the scale of observation and also how management questions would be best addressed using predetermined scales of analysis. Using resource selection functions (RSF)...
Coexistence with large carnivores is one of the greatest conservation challenges across the globe, in part because mechanisms of coexistence are unknown or contested. Large carnivores can be conflict-prone and pose real or perceived threats to human life and property. In North America, grizzly...
1. A resource selection function is a model of the likelihood that an available spatial unit will be used by an animal, given its resource value. But how do we appropriately define availability? Step selection analysis deals with this problem at the scale of the observed positional data, by...
Movement and settlement patterns of animal offspring, along with the costs of occupying familiar and unfamiliar habitats, have been inferred frequently, but rarely have they been documented directly. To obtain such information, we monitored the individual fates of 205 (94%) of the 219 offspring...

These were data used to fit home-range models for meerkat social groups. Data are provided as comma-separated variables, within directories in a zip file.
Sustaining the Recovery of Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) in the North Saskatchewan River of AlbertaDownload
Nearly all Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) populations across North America have experienced losses to historic abundances estimated to be > 99%. This species is especially vulnerable to overharvest, habitat degradation, river fragmentation from dams, and is slow to recover due to life...
Venison to beef and deviance from truth: biotelemetry for detecting seasonal wolf prey selection in AlbertaDownload
An abrupt interface between mountains and prairies in southwestern Alberta means wilderness areas and carnivore populations overlap cattle grazing lands. Consequently, there is concern about the effects of large carnivores, especially wolves, on livestock. I used GPS clusters and scat samples...
