Title: Using step and path selection functions for estimating resistance to movement: Pumas as a case study

Author: Zeller, Katherine A.; McGarigal, Kevin; Cushman, Samuel A.; Beier, Paul; Vickers, T. Winston; Boyce, Walter M.;

Date: 2015

Source: Landscape Ecology. 31: 1319-1335.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

GPS telemetry collars and their ability to acquire accurate and consistently frequent locations have increased the use of step selection functions (SSFs) and path selection functions (PathSFs) for studying animal movement and estimating resistance. However, previously published SSFs and PathSFs often do not accommodate multiple scales or multiscale modeling.

Keywords: puma concolor, resistance surface, connectivity, corridors, wildlife, multi-scale habitat modeling
