Clarifying niche width using broad-scale, hierarchial occupancy models: A case study with a recovering mesocarnivore.

Abstract:

A species’ habitat niche width informs its position on the generalist-specialist continuum, which is central to life history theory and crucial to conservation planning. However, assessments of niche width are often based on local-scale studies or qualitative descriptions rather than broad, quantitative assessments conducted in heterogeneous landscapes. Here, we show how broad- scale, hierarchical occupancy models can clarify a species’ niche width and degree of habitat specialism by evaluati...
