About this book

Studies how animals select their resources, in terms of food and habitat. Describes various types of study design.


Contents

Introduction to resource selection studies; examples of the use of resource selection functions; statistical modelling procedures; studies with resources defined by several categories; estimating a resource selection probability function from a census of resource units using logistic regression; estimating a resource selection probability function from a census of resource units at several points in time using the proportional hazards model; estimating a resource selection function from samples of resource units using proportional hazards and log-linear models; estimating a resource selection function from two samples of resource units using logistic regression and discriminant function methods; general log-linear modelling; analysis of the amount of use; the comparison of selection for different types of resource units.
