Louise M. Soanes, John P. Y. Arnould, Stephen G. Dodd, Michael D. Sumner and Jonathan A. Green How many seabirds do we need to track to define home-range area? Journal of Applied Ecology 50
Seabird and marine mammal tracking studies are increasingly being used to aid the designation of marine conservation zones and to predict important foraging areas. We suggest that many studies may be underestimating the size of these foraging areas and that better estimates could be made by considering both the duration and number of data logger deployments. Researchers intending to draw conclusions from tracking data should conduct a similar analysis of their data as used in this study to determine the reliability of their home-range area predictions.
