Cite this dataset

Alavi, Shauhin et al. (2022). Food for thought: Barro Colorado Island frugivore home range summaries [Dataset]. Dryad.


This dataset consists of home-range area summaries of four species of frugivores on Barro Colorado Island, Panama, including 12 kinkajou (Potos flavus), 16 white-nosed coati (Nasua narica), 8 white-faced capuchin monkey (Cebus capucinus), and 8 spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi). Summaries include effective sample sizes (DOF) as well as parameter estimates (in hectares) including upper and lower confidence intervals. Metadata for each individual are provided including their indivdual ID and species ID. The summaries of the autocorrelated kernel density estimates include additional metadata regarding the sex, weight, and sampling year of each individual. 


Home ranges are 95% error-informed pHREML AKDEc home-range area estimates and IID kernel density estimates, and were generated using the ctmm package (Fleming and Calabrese, 2015; Calabrese et al., 2016) in r (R Core Team, 2021). Animal tracking data used to generate the home range summaries are hosted on Movebank (Processed data: Movebank ID 1120749252; Unprocessed data: Movebank ID 468460067).
