[tlocoh-info] Using T-LoCo to look at spatial and temporal avoidance between individuals

Hello all,

I am using T-LoCo for a study of black bear in Yosemite National Park,
California. I will be examining how despotic distribution influences adult
male and adult female use of areas of human development. Part of my study
involves looking at males and females whose home ranges overlap in a
developed area. I will look at presences and absences of each sex in the
area of overlap to see if females are avoiding the shared area when a male
is present. I was wondering if anyone knows if there has been any work done
on a question like this using T-LoCo? The current method that I plan to use
was presented in Minta 1992 (see full citation below). This method
basically takes presences and absences for each animal and compares them to
the expected frequency of spatially independent home range use by each
animal relative to the other, and the expected frequency of temporally
independent home range use by the two animals.

Minta, S.C. 1992. Test of spatial and temporal interaction among animals.
Ecological Applications 2: 178-188.
