(2012) used daily logistic regressions to classify occurrence/non-occurrence based on monthly threshold and then applied four interpolation methods (IDW, MLR, LWP and Climatological MLR) on wet days by including three predictor variables (northing, easting and elevation).
These variables along with easting and northing were found to be significant, explaining 99.9% of the final model deviance.
The subplots were numbered 1 to 6, from south to north (northing) and then west to east (easting), in a pattern of letter "N."
Extents for each home range were set to be the same size (300 X 300 km) and were centered over the locations by calculating the midpoint between the maximum and minimum northing and easting. We did this to allow comparison between BBMMs, since the probability of an individual being within a given cell is calculated as a fraction of the probability of that individual being within the extent, which is set at one (Home et al., 2007).
