In this study we used occupancy models to investigate detectability in relation to habitat types by squirrels, in a mosaic of different forests types, in a hilly area of Central Italy. The distribution of the target species was investigated by using hair tubes. Overall, there was a prevalence of hair tubes used by squirrels in mixed conifers and deciduous forests and in young… CONTINUE READING
