Reproducible home ranges (rhr): A new, user‐friendly R package for analyses of wildlife telemetry data
Analyzing wildlife tracking data frequently involves the estimation of home ranges. However, home range studies frequently lack important analytical steps, or only insufficiently report results. This… Expand
Selection of Provenances to Adapt Tropical Pine Forestry to Climate Change on the Basis of Climate Analogs
Pinus patula and Pinus tecunumanii play an important role in the forestry sector in the tropics and subtropics and, in recent decades, members of the International Tree Breeding and Conservation… Expand
Path segmentation for beginners: an overview of current methods for detecting changes in animal movement patterns
Increased availability of high-resolution movement data has led to the development of numerous methods for studying changes in animal movement behavior. Path segmentation methods provide basics for… Expand

Individuals living in groups have to achieve collective action for successful territorial defense. Because conflicts between neighboring groups always involve risks and costs, individuals must base… Expand
Estimating utilization distributions from fitted step-selection functions
Habitat-selection analyses are often used to link environmental covariates, measured within some spatial domain of assumed availability, to animal location data that are assumed to be independent.… Expand
The role of the residence-effect on the outcome of intergroup encounters in Verreaux’s sifakas
Intergroup competition has an important impact on the survival and fitness of individuals in group-living species. However, factors influencing the probability of winning an encounter are not fully… Expand
Accounting for individual-specific variation in habitat-selection studies: Efficient estimation of mixed-effects models using Bayesian or frequentist computation
1. Popular frameworks for studying habitat selection include resource-selection functions (RSFs) and step-selection functions (SSFs) estimated using logistic and conditional logistic regression,… Expand
Animal movement tools (amt): R package for managing tracking data and conducting habitat selection analyses
We present the R package amt (animal movement tools) that allows users to fit SSFs to data and to simulate space use of animals from fitted models. Expand
Does estimator choice influence our ability to detect changes in home-range size?
BackgroundEstimates of home-range size are frequently used to compare areal requirements of animals over time or space. Comparative studies of home-range estimators have highlighted extreme… Expand
