Restrictions on roaming Until the past century or so, the movement of wild animals was relatively unrestricted, and their travels contributed substantially to ecological processes. As humans have increasingly altered natural habitats, natural animal movements have been restricted. Tucker et al. examined GPS locations for more than 50 species. In general, animal movements were shorter in areas with high human impact, likely owing to changed behaviors and physical limitations. Besides affecting… Expand
Human disturbance causes widespread disruption of animal movement
TLDR
It is shown that disturbance by humans has widespread impacts on the movements of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and arthropods, and the need to reduce the negative impacts of humans on animal movement is emphasized. Expand
The influence of human disturbance on wildlife nocturnality
TLDR
A global study of anthropogenic effects on mammal diel activity patterns, conducting a meta-analysis of 76 studies of 62 species from six continents revealed a strong effect of humans on daily patterns of wildlife activity. Expand
Changes in the home range sizes of terrestrial vertebrates in response to urban disturbance: a meta-analysis
The unprecedented growth rate in human population and the increasing movement of people to urban areas is causing a rapid increase in urbanisation globally. Urban environments may restrict orExpand

TLDR
A trait-based framework for selective fish passage is developed based on understanding the types of movements displayed by fishes and the role of ecological filters in determining the spatial distributions of fishes to create a multidimensional niche space based on attributes such as physical capabilities, body morphology, sensory capabilities, behavior, and movement phenology. Expand
Global correlates of range contractions and expansions in terrestrial mammals
TLDR
It is shown that human factors mostly explain range contractions while life history explains both contraction and expansion in mammals, showing that many species ranges are contracting while others are stable or expanding and to inform conservation in an increasingly human-modified world. Expand
Movement ecology of large herbivores in African savannas: current knowledge and gaps
Nearly 90% of the world's large herbivore diversity occurs in Africa, yet there is a striking dearth of information on the movement ecology of these organisms compared to herbivores living in higherExpand
Movement Ecology of Neotropical Forest Mammals
This book brings a unique perspective to animal movement studies because all cases came from tropical environments where the great diversity, either biological and structurally (trees, shrubs, vines,Expand
Longest terrestrial migrations and movements around the world
TLDR
It is found that caribou likely do exhibit the longest terrestrial migrations on the planet, but, over the course of a year, gray wolves move the most, consistent with the trophic-level based hypothesis that predators would move more than their prey. Expand
Bears without borders: Long-distance movement in human-dominated landscapes
Abstract Conservation of wide-ranging species and their mobility is a major challenge in an increasingly fragmented world. Species are traditionally viewed as static conservation targets and theExpand
Hidden Markov Models reveal a clear human footprint on the movements of highly mobile African wild dogs
TLDR
Hidden Markov models are used to test how wild dog movements were affected by the Human Footprint Index in areas inside and outside of South Luangwa National Park to better understand differences between species in recent loss of connectivity. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that for migratory populations as well, animals living in resource-poor environments travel farther to fulfil their resource needs. Expand
Non‐optimal animal movement in human‐altered landscapes
TLDR
This synthesis synthesizes the understanding of the relationship between landscape structure and animal movement in human-modified landscapes and develops a hypothesis that predicts the relative importance of the different population-level consequences of these non-optimal movements. Expand

Evolutionary predictors of mammalian home range size: body mass, diet and the environment
TLDR
It is demonstrated that diet and body size both influence home range patterns but differ in their relative contribution, and it is shown that colonization of the marine environment has resulted in the expansion of home range size. Expand
Migratory Animals Couple Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning Worldwide
TLDR
The highly predictable, seasonally pulsed nature of animal migration, together with the spatial scales at which it operates and the immense number of individuals involved, not only set migration apart from other types of movement, but render it a uniquely potent, yet underappreciated, dimension of biodiversity that is intimately embedded within resident communities. Expand
Energetic and biomechanical constraints on animal migration distance.
TLDR
Data from over 200 species of migratory birds, mammals, fish, and invertebrates support the central conclusion of the model - that body size drives variation in maximum migration distance among species through its effects on metabolism and the cost of locomotion. Expand

Bias in estimating animal travel distance: the effect of sampling frequency
TLDR
This work used a novel method to obtain fine-scale characteristics of animal movement from camera trap videos for a set of tropical forest mammals and used these characteristics to generate detailed movement paths to study how estimates of distance travelled are affected by sampling frequency.

The impacts of roads and other infrastructure on mammal and bird populations: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The findings show the importance of minimizing infrastructure development for wildlife conservation in relatively undisturbed areas by combining actual species distributions with the effect distance functions, which can be used in models in support of decision making on infrastructure planning.
