ANALYSIS OF MOOSE HOME RANGES
We analyze the late winter home ranges of two bull moose (Alces alces) in Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska, with the program HOMERANGE. This program calculates minimum convex polygon, Jennrich-Turner bivariate normal, weighted bivariate normal and harmonic mean estimates of home range size, tests the assumptions of these methods, and tests for the presence of core areas within the harmonic home range. Outliers are readily identified and removed from the analysis if desired. The program plots home range boundaries, core areas and percent use contours within the home range.
