Table 2 Summary of satellite data and movement parameters, kernel size (h lscv ; estimated using fixed kernel least square cross validation (LSCV)), and areas of 50% and 95% kernel contours, derived using LC3 data

From: Home range and movements of American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) in an estuary habitat

  1. Kernel density estimates (KDE) were calculated with all location data for F1, M1, and M2, and by season for M3 and M4, where season 1 is from January to March, season 2 is from April to June, season 3 is from July to September, and season 4 is from October to December.
