The use of multilayer network analysis in animal behaviour
We review common questions in animal behaviour that can be studied using a multilayer approach, and we link these questions to specific analyses. Expand

Analysing animal social network dynamics: the potential of stochastic actor‐oriented models
Summary Animals are embedded in dynamically changing networks of relationships with conspecifics. These dynamic networks are fundamental aspects of their environment, creating selection on behavioursExpand

Understanding animal social structure: exponential random graph models in animal behaviour research
The social environment is a pervasive influence on the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of animal populations. Recently, social network analysis has provided an increasingly powerful and diverseExpand

The importance of fission–fusion social group dynamics in birds
Almost all animal social groups show some form of fission–fusion dynamics, whereby group membership is not spatio-temporally stable. These dynamics have major implications at both population andExpand

The consequences of unidentifiable individuals for the analysis of an animal social network
Social network analysis is pervasive in understanding animal social systems, and provides information about how individuals vary in their social strategies. Many long-term studies comprising uniquelyExpand

Using Social Network Measures in Wildlife Disease Ecology, Epidemiology, and Management
Abstract Contact networks, behavioral interactions, and shared use of space can all have important implications for the spread of disease in animals. Social networks enable the quantification ofExpand

Wildlife disease ecology from the individual to the population: Insights from a long‐term study of a naturally infected European badger population
Long-term individual-based datasets on host-pathogen systems are a rare and valuable resource for understanding the infectious disease dynamics in wildlife. A study of European badgers (Meles meles)Expand

Integrating social behaviour, demography and disease dynamics in network models: applications to disease management in declining wildlife populations
The emergence and spread of infections can contribute to the decline and extinction of populations, particularly in conjunction with anthropogenic environmental change. The importance ofExpand

Contact networks structured by sex underpin sex‐specific epidemiology of infection
Abstract Contact networks are fundamental to the transmission of infection and host sex often affects the acquisition and progression of infection. However, the epidemiological impacts of sex‐relatedExpand

Contact chains of cattle farms in Great Britain
Network analyses can assist in predicting the course of epidemics. Time-directed paths or ‘contact chains' provide a measure of host-connectedness across specified timeframes, and so representExpand
