(WHAT ORDER FOR DATA – SEND US TEMPLATE)

Error Analyses:  All sites had an accuracy assessment, include description of assessment, all sites had error polygons were 1 ha or less.

Analysis type:  Fixed kernel with least squares cross validation, 95%  convex polygons, what package to use?   Home range extension in Arc View and RANGES

Approach:  Calculate by season (4), and year, sex and age class

Seasons: Fall/Winter (Pre-rut to rut 9/1 to 12/31) Spring/Summer (gestation to parturition 1/1 to 8/31);  # Home range points 15 or more (adaptive); yearly using 30-40 relocations.

Time Frame:  1990-1995, 1995-2000, 2000-2006

Data Sources:  Nixon (IL), Schauber (IL), Campa (MI), Jenks (SD and MN sites), Hygstrom (NE), Mathews (WI), Millspaugh/Hansen (northern MO)

Ecotype:  based on hierarchical classification system

Anomalous Behavior:  Describe entire population home ranges including all variability, pull out anomalous deer with 2 home ranges, pull out migratory behavior.

Landscape composition:

Edge density, forest contagion, ownership type, # land ownerships, %Habitat composition within study area (defined by core area- minimum convex polygon for all deer except dispersers and transitional deer), location (latitudinal gradient), forest patch size, road density.  Use national land cover map. SEND JON SHAPE FILE WITH STUDY AREA, HABITAT COMPOSITION FROM LAND COVER – LAND USE DATA BASE

PAPER #2:  Mortality and Survival of white-tailed deer in Midwestern Agro-forested Landscapes (Leads:  Scott, Rique, Bill)

Key Questions:

1.How does landscape influence mortality of with-tailed deer does?

Data fields/Variables: state, ID, gender, date captured, date of mortality/off air, does, age, cause of mortality

Fate:  censored, dead, alive

Cause of mortality:  vehicles, hunting, predation, disease, poaching, accidents, diseases
