Home range: A fractal approach

  title={Home range: A fractal approach},
  author={Craig Loehle},
  journal={Landscape Ecology},
Most current methods for describing animal home range assume that it may be represented as a Euclidean type shape such as a bell shaped curve or a closed polygon. Landscape ecology has increasingly shown that ecological objects are more often highly fragmented and irregular. A fractal approach to description of animal home range was thus developed. For each point where the animal was observed, a circle centered on this point was first laid down to represent the area searched for prey by the… CONTINUE READING
