  • Empirical data on behavior, such as space-use patterns, are important to the success of animal re- introductions. We studied space-use patterns in a growing population of Asiatic wild ass ( Equus hemionus ) reintroduced into the Ramon erosion cirque in the Negev desert, Israel. Between 1988 and 1995 we used di- rect observation to determine the location and association of males and females. All adult females and dom- inant males were individually recognized. Home ranges of dominant males… CONTINUE READING
