Theory of Home Range Estimation from Mark-Recapture Measurements of Animal Populations

  title={Theory of Home Range Estimation from Mark-Recapture Measurements of Animal Populations},
  author={Luca Giuggioli and Guillermo Abramson and V. M. Kenkre and Robert R. Parmenter and Terry L. Yates},
A theory is provided for the estimation of home ranges of animals from the standard mark-recapture technique in which data are collected by capturing, tagging and recapturing the animals. The theoretical tool used is the Fokker-Planck equation, its characteristic quantities being the diffusion constant which describes the motion of the animals, and the attractive potential which addresses their tendency to live near their burrows. The measurement technique is shown to correspond to the… CONTINUE READING
