Title Spatial capture-recapture / edited by J. Andrew Royle, Richard B. Chandler, Rahel Sollmann, Beth Gardner.

Publication Info. Boston : Elsevier, 2013.

Item Status

Description 1 online resource.
Summary "Space plays a vital role in virtually all ecological processes (Tilman and Kareiva, 1997; Hanski, 1999; Clobert et al., 2001). The spatial arrangement of habitat can influence movement patterns during dispersal, habitat selection, and survival. The distance between an organism and its competitors and prey can influence activity patterns and foraging behavior. Further, understanding distribution and spatial variation in abundance is necessary in the conservation and management of populations"-- Provided by publisher.
