Toward an ecological synthesis: a case for habitat selection
  • D. Morris
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Oecologia
  • 11 April 2003
Habitat selection, and its associated density and frequency-dependent evolution, has a profound influence on such vital phenomena as population regulation, species interactions, the assembly ofExpand

  • 1 July 1988
SummaryDensity-dependence provides a causal link between processes acting at different levels of ecological organization. The linkage between density-dependent habitat use, population regulation andExpand

Using commonality analysis in multiple regressions: a tool to decompose regression effects in the face of multicollinearity
TLDR
We use simulated and empirical data to demonstrate how a relatively similar approach, regression commonality analysis, can be used along with beta coefficients and structure coefficients to better interpretMR results in the face of multicollinearity. Expand

TESTS OF DENSITY-DEPENDENT HABITAT SELECTION IN A PATCHY ENVIRONMENT'
A simple regression analysis can be used to assess the response of animal density to differences in habitat quality. The same test can evaluate general predictions of habitat selection theory as wellExpand

Considering ecological dynamics in resource selection functions.
1. Describing distribution and abundance is requisite to exploring interactions between organisms and their environment. Recently, the resource selection function (RSF) has emerged to replace many ofExpand

Spatial scale and the cost of density-dependent habitat selection
  • D. Morris
  • Biology
  • Evolutionary Ecology
  • 1 October 1987
SummaryHabitat selection costs depend upon the scale of habitat. At the fine-grained microhabitat scale, cost is linked to optimal foraging, and habitat selection should be abandoned even thoughExpand

Habitat‐dependent foraging in a classic predator–prey system: a fable from snowshoe hares
Current research contrasting prey habitat use has documented, with virtual unanimity, habitat differences in predation risk. Relatively few studies have considered, either in theory or in practice,Expand
