author keywords: demography; redistribution kernels; perfect mixing; spatial ecology; dispersal; time budgets
TL;DR: The way animals move has important consequences for the degree of mixing that the authors expect to find both within a population and between individuals of different species, and as most animals revisit some places and avoid others based on their previous experiences, they foresee the incorporation of long-term memory and intention in movement models.

Home ranges, cognitive maps, habitat models and fitness landscapes for Martes

TL;DR: It is proposed that energy might be used as a crude index for modeling cognitive maps and fitness landscapes for fishers, and that model would form a basis for testing the a priori hypothesis that fishers choose home ranges that minimize the area needed to meet their requirements, thus maximizing their fitness.

The effect on model identifiability of allowing different relocation rates for live and dead animals in the combined analysis of telemetry and recapture data

JOURNAL OF AGRICULTURAL BIOLOGICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL STATISTICS, 9(1), 27–41.

By: M. Nasution*, C. Brownie n, K. Pollock n & R. Powell n

author keywords: capture-recapture; near-singularity; overparameterization; radio telemetry; unequal catchability; wildlife studies
TL;DR: Analysis of data from the study on black bears illustrated that estimates of survival have poor precision when relocation rates are estimated separately for live and dead animals, and it is recommended that the effort expended to relocate both living anddead animals be consistently high in each telemetry survey, so that relocation rates will be high and constant across time and mortality status.

TL;DR: It was found that male home-range sizes were not positively associated with body size, but encounter rates with breeding females were not, and multiple paternity occurred in two of seven litters, indicating that sperm competition is important in black bear mating behaviour.

TL;DR: Forest management positively affected some aspects of bear habitat but had an overall negative effect on habitat suitability in the southern Appalachians, where soft mast is limiting, however, trade-offs between overall habitats suitability and improved productivity of soft mast may be warranted.
