7 - Home Range Analysis

from Part II - GIS Analysis in Fine-Scale Space


A quick search on Google Scholar in November 2019 indicated that Burt (1943) has been cited more than 2700 times. Although the general definition of home range by Burt (1943) is commonly referenced in studies that calculate the home range for a particular study group, the definition does not address which data one should use, the duration of data (length of study), the metrics for calculating home range, or (not surprisingly given that it’s been 70 years since Burt (1943) coined the definition) the type of software to use.
