Demonstration: Ranges V - An Analysis System for Biological Location Data

Robert E. Kenward and Katharine H. Hodder, Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Furzebrook Research Station, Wareham BH20 5AS, United Kingdom

A demonstration of Ranges V runs 20 analysis examples "live", using command files, with the facility for viewers to press keys to advance, reverse or re-start. Examples show analyses of home-range size and structure (using convex, concave, peeled and cluster polygons, ellipses, harmonic mean and other kernel contours), of movements (including dispersal detection), of sociality and of habitat-use from Landsat data. Ranges V was produced by the UK Institute of Terrestrial Ecology in collaboration with the U.S. National Biological Service and the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research.
