Title Data for GAM analysis
Downloaded 53 times
Description Data used to model the relative probability of occurrence of caribou track networks in winter as a function of the distance from the nearest anthropogenic disturbance (Table 1). Landscape features (distance from the nearest cut block or road, various land cover types) are provided at observed track network locations and at random locations.
