© 2017 The Zoological Society of London Coexistence of ecologically similar species is sustained by niche partitioning, a fundamental element of which is diet. Overlapping of resource requirements between sympatric species can create interspecific co... Read More

Use of tri-axial accelerometers to assess terrestrial mammal behaviour in the wild (2015)
Journal Article
Lush, L., Ellwood, S., Markham, A., Ward, A. I., & Wheeler, P. (2016). Use of tri-axial accelerometers to assess terrestrial mammal behaviour in the wild. Journal of Zoology, 298(4), 257-265. doi:10.1111/jzo.12308

Tri‐axial accelerometer tags provide quantitative data on body movement that can be used to characterize behaviour and understand species ecology in ways that would otherwise be impossible. Using tags on wild terrestrial mammals, especially smaller s... Read More
