Combining telemetry ellipses and landscape metrics to assess habitat spatial structure
Landscape Ecology

Confidence ellipses are areas derived from telemetry data that can be used to assess daily habitat use when integrated with land cover spatial structure. Our goal was to assess the feasibility of using confidence ellipses derived from telemetry data to assess landscape structure. Our objectives were (1) to identify the geometry of confidence ellipses that can be used in landscape level studies; and (2) to quantify landscape structure within confidence ellipses derived from telemetry data. We used Rio Grande wild turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo intermedia) as our model species.
