Measuring activity levels in animals provides important information about their behavioral ecology and may be a relevant factor in management and conservation. We tested an individual-based method to discriminate active and passive behaviors on brown bears (Ursus arctos), using a dual-axis motion sensor mounted on Global Positioning System–Global System for Mobile Communications (GPS–GSM) collars. The method takes into account individual variation in activity levels and does not require further… CONTINUE READING
