High resolution drone imagery reveals drivers of fine-scale giant otter habitat selection in the land-water interface

Abstract:

Neotropical freshwater habitats are particularly sensitive to degradation by human activity. Piscivorous semi-aquatic freshwater megafauna inhabit both the terrestrial and aquatic mediums and thus may be good indicators of wetland habitat quality. However, the drivers of their space use at the terrestrial and aquatic landscape levels are not well understood. We studied the spatial behavior and habitat use of giant otters in Madre de Dios, Peru, inhabiting areas with variable levels of protect...
