Evaluating resource selection functions
A resource selection function (RSF) is any model that yields values proportional to the probability of use of a resource unit. RSF models often are fitted using generalized linear models (GLMs)Expand

Resource Selection Functions Based on Use–Availability Data: Theoretical Motivation and Evaluation Methods
TLDR
We use logistic regression to estimate a resource selection function (RSF) tied to a use–availability design based on independent samples drawn from used and available resource units. Expand

Application of random effects to the study of resource selection by animals.
TLDR
We present a simple case study of an analysis of resource selection by grizzly bears in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains with and without random effects. Expand

Removing GPS collar bias in habitat selection studies
Summary 1. Compared to traditional radio-collars, global positioning system (GPS) collars provide finer spatial resolution and collect locations across a broader range of spatial and temporalExpand

Modelling the spatial distribution of human-caused grizzly bear mortalities in the Central Rockies ecosystem of Canada
We examined the spatial patterns of 297 human-caused grizzly bear mortalities from 1971 to 2002 within the Central Rockies ecosystem (CRE) of Canada to explore relationships between mortalities andExpand

SEASONAL AND DIEL PATTERNS OF GRIZZLY BEAR DIET AND ACTIVITY IN WEST-CENTRAL ALBERTA
Abstract Seasonal food habits and activity patterns were examined for grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) in west-central Alberta, Canada, to better understand habitat requirements in a threatenedExpand

Grizzly bears and forestry I: Selection of clearcuts by grizzly bears in west-central Alberta, Canada
We examined if clearcuts were selected as habitats by grizzly bears (Ursus arctos L.) in west-central Alberta during three seasons: hypophagia, early hyperphagia, and late hyperphagia. Our objectivesExpand

A habitat-based framework for grizzly bear conservation in Alberta
Grizzly bear (Ursus arctos L.) populations in Alberta are threatened by habitat loss and high rates of human-caused mortality. Spatial depictions of fitness would greatly improve management andExpand

Can models of presence‐absence be used to scale abundance? Two case studies considering extremes in life history
Understanding patterns of species occurrence and abundance is a central theme of ecology, natural resource management, and conservation. Although occurrence models have been widely used forExpand
