Project description

The general objective is to develop a methodology in the context of movement ecology and

geography allowing to analyze spatio-temporal patterns of animal movement trajectories, in a

dynamically changing landscape. In particular, both spatial and temporal autocorrelation

embedded in this type of data will have to emerge in terms of sequential use of environmental

parameters and ecologically meaningful spatial covariates.
