I collected two different data types during my urban fisher ecology work: location and accelerometer. I have made most of these data publicly accessible via www.movebank.org and actively work with several research groups who are investigating a variety of questions with these data.
Movement data: I deployed GPS collars, set to collect a location > 2 minutes, continuously on fishers (methods described here). The location data used for the corridor paper is publicly available at www.movebank.org under the study name “Martes pennanti LaPoint New York”. Please view the data and contact me for permission for its use. I have location data from more individuals, but I am currently exploring analyses.
Accelerometer data: These collars also contained tri-axial accelerometers that recorded changes in the pull of gravity (i.e., the animals motion) every 3 minutes, continuously. I am analyzing these data independently and with collaborators to quantify energy expenditure, activity patterns, and behaviors in fishers. Please contact me with inquiries.
