Improved communication systems, shrinking battery sizes and the price drop of tracking devices have led to an increasing availability of trajectory tracking data. These data are often analyzed to understand animals behavior using mixture-type model. Due to their straightforward implementation and efficiency, hidden Markov mod- els are generally used but they are based on assumptions that are rarely verified on real data. In this work we propose a new model based on the Logistic-Normal process… 


A general discrete‐time modeling framework for animal movement using multistate random walks
This work synthesizes previously existing and novel methodologies to develop a general suite of mechanistic models based on biased and correlated random walks that allow different behavioral states for directed, area-restricted, and exploratory movements associated with haul-out, foraging, and other behaviors.
Bayesian inference for Markov processes with diffusion and discrete components
Data arising in certain radio-tracking experiments consist of both a continuous spatial component and a discrete component related to behaviour. This leads naturally to stochastic models with a state
Flexible and practical modeling of animal telemetry data: hidden Markov models and extensions.
A number of extensions of HMMs for animal movement modeling are described, including more flexible state transition models and individual random effects (fitted in a non-Bayesian framework).
A time-dependent extension of the projected normal regression model for longitudinal circular data based on a hidden Markov heterogeneity structure
A time-dependent mixed effects projected normal regression model based on a set of animal-specific parameters following a hidden Markov chain is introduced to deal with unobserved heterogeneity and an expectation–maximization algorithm is outlined.
Continuous-time correlated random walk model for animal telemetry data.
A continuous-time version of the correlated random walk model for animal telemetry data that allows data that have been nonuniformly collected over time to be modeled without subsampling, interpolation, or aggregation to obtain a set of locations uniformly spaced in time is proposed.
Exact Bayesian inference for animal movement in continuous time
Novel methodology is developed which allows exact Bayesian statistical analysis for a rich class of movement models with behavioural switching in continuous time, without any need for time discretization error and allows exact simulation and Markov chain Monte Carlo inference.
Bayesian hidden Markov modelling using circular‐linear general projected normal distribution
We introduce a multivariate hidden Markov model to jointly cluster time‐series observations with different support, that is, circular and linear. Relying on the general projected normal distribution,
Estimating animal resource selection from telemetry data using point process models.
This study takes a conceptually different approach to modelling animal telemetry data for making RSF inference, and proposes point process models that are a generalization of the weighted distribution telemetry models.
Learning Continuous-Time Hidden Markov Models for Event Data
Recent advances in the development of efficient EM-based learning methods for CT-HMM models are described and the use of models with more than 100 states to analyze disease progression using glaucoma and Alzheimer’s Disease datasets is demonstrated.
