Behavioral intermittence , Lévy patterns , and randomness in animal movement

  title={Behavioral intermittence , L{\'e}vy patterns , and randomness in animal movement},
  author={Frederic Bartumeus},
The recent debate on both the existence and the cause of fractal (Lévy) patterns in animal movement resonates with much deeper and richer problems in movement ecology: (1) establishing mechanistic links between animal behavior and statistical patterns of movement, and (2) understanding what is the role of randomness (stochasticity) in animal motion. Here, the idea of behavioral intermittence is shown to be crucial to establish mechanistic connections between the behavior of organisms and the… CONTINUE READING
