  title={Analysis of Resource Selection Using Utilization Distributions},
  author={Joshua J. Millspaugh and John M. Marzluff and Robert A. Gitzen and Chadwick D. Rittenhouse and Michael W. Hubbard},
Often resource selection functions (RSFs) are developed by comparing resource attributes of used sites to unused or available ones. We present alternative approaches to the analysis of resource selection based on the utilization distribution (UD). Our objectives are to describe the rationale for estimation of RSFs based on UDs, offer advice about computing UDs and RSFs, and illustrate their use in resource selection studies. We discuss the 3 main factors that should be considered when using… CONTINUE READING
