EXTRACTING MORE OUT OF RELOCATION DATA: BUILDING MOVEMENT MODELS AS MIXTURES OF RANDOM WALKS
TLDR
A framework for fitting multiple random walks to animal move- ment paths consisting of ordered sets of step lengths and turning angles, which allows for identification of different movement states using several properties of observed paths and lead naturally to the formulation of movement models. Expand
Invasive Mutualists Erode Native Pollination Webs
TLDR
Connectivity among native species declined in highly invaded webs, and links were transferred from generalist native species to super-generalist alien species during invasion, which can leave many native species subject to novel ecological and evolutionary dynamics. Expand
Stability of pollination services decreases with isolation from natural areas despite honey bee visits.
TLDR
Wild pollinators are relevant for crop productivity and stability even when honey bees are abundant, and policies to preserve and restore natural areas in agricultural landscapes should enhance levels and reliability of pollination services. Expand
Flexible and practical modeling of animal telemetry data: hidden Markov models and extensions.
TLDR
A number of extensions of HMMs for animal movement modeling are described, including more flexible state transition models and individual random effects (fitted in a non-Bayesian framework). Expand
The interpretation of habitat preference metrics under use–availability designs
TLDR
It is argued that preference is not interpretable as reflecting the intrinsic behavioural motivations of the animal, that estimates of preference are not directly comparable among different samples of availability and that preference was not necessarily correlated with the value of habitat to the animal. Expand
Multiple movement modes by large herbivores at multiple spatiotemporal scales
TLDR
Elk movements were characterized by a complex interplay between attraction to preferred habitat types and memory of previous movements across the home-range, suggesting that multiphasic structure is fundamental to the movement patterns of elk at all temporal and spatial scales tested. Expand
Stochastic modelling of animal movement
TLDR
Three modern research arenas in animal movement modelling imply more detail in the movement pattern than general models of movement can accommodate, but realistic empiric evaluation of their predictions requires dense locational data, both in time and space, only available with modern GPS telemetry. Expand
A general discrete‐time modeling framework for animal movement using multistate random walks
TLDR
This work synthesizes previously existing and novel methodologies to develop a general suite of mechanistic models based on biased and correlated random walks that allow different behavioral states for directed, area-restricted, and exploratory movements associated with haul-out, foraging, and other behaviors. Expand
Inequalities in fruit-removal and seed dispersal: consequences of bird behaviour, neighbourhood density and landscape aggregation
TLDR
The authors' model and field data show an interaction between plant spatial pattern and bird foraging, which results in neighbourhood-specific dispersal and rates of fruit removal, and as fruiting plants become aggregated, inequalities in fruit-removal rates increase and seed dispersal distance decreases. Expand
Building the bridge between animal movement and population dynamics
TLDR
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.
