Hi Nalani:

Sounds like an interesting study. I look forward to seeing your results.

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.
