Animal Movement: Statistical Models for Telemetry Data by Mevin B. Hooten,Devin S. Johnson,Brett T. McClintock,Juan M.

By Mevin B. Hooten,Devin S. Johnson,Brett T. McClintock,Juan M. Morales

The examine of animal stream has regularly been a key aspect in ecological technological know-how, since it is inherently associated with serious methods that scale from participants to populations and groups to ecosystems. quick advancements in biotelemetry facts assortment and processing expertise have given upward thrust to a number of statistical tools for characterizing animal move. The ebook serves as a accomplished reference for the kinds of statistical types used to review individual-based animal flow.

Animal Movement is an important reference for natural world biologists, quantitative ecologists, and statisticians who search a deeper figuring out of recent animal stream versions. a large choice of modeling techniques are reconciled within the booklet utilizing a constant notation. versions are geared up into teams in response to how they deal with the underlying spatio-temporal technique of circulate. Connections between ways are highlighted to permit the reader to shape a broader view of animal flow research and its institutions with conventional spatial and temporal statistical modeling.

After an preliminary evaluation analyzing the function that animal move performs in ecology, a primer on spatial and temporal statistics presents a high-quality origin for the rest of the e-book. each one next bankruptcy outlines a basic kind of statistical version used in the modern research of telemetry info for animal stream inference. Descriptions start with uncomplicated conventional kinds and sequentially building up to basic periods of types in every one type. vital history and technical info for every classification of version are supplied, together with spatial element technique types, discrete-time dynamic types, and continuous-time stochastic technique versions. The e-book additionally covers the basic parts for a way to deal with a number of assets of uncertainty, similar to situation errors and latent habit states. as well as thorough descriptions of animal circulation versions, modifications and connections also are emphasised to supply a broader point of view of approaches.
