Statistical methods for modeling the movement and space-use of carnivores
Recent advancements in the ability to monitor animal locations through time has led to a rapidly expanding field focused on statistical models for animal movement. However, many of the existing methods are computationally time-consuming to fit, restricting their application to a few individuals, and inaccessible to wildlife management practitioners. In addition, existing movement models were developed for contemporary animal location data. Many previously collected telemetry data sets may provide important information on animal movement, but there may be additional challenges that are not present ...
