We describe a new method for estimating the area of home ranges and constructing utilization distributions (UDs) from spatial data. We compare our method with bivariate kernel and alpha-hull methods, using both randomly distributed and highly aggregated data to test the accuracy of area estimates and UD isopleth construction. The data variously contain holes, corners, and corridors linking high use areas. Our method is based on taking the union of the minimum convex polygons (MCP) associated… CONTINUE READING
