  1. Effect of animal size, month, and diel period on creek whaler Carcharhinus fitzroyensis 50% and 95% kernel utilisation distribution (KUD) size (km2). Degree of freedom (df), Akaike’s information criterion correction (AICc), difference in AICc (ΔAICc), and Akaike weight (weight) values are given for each model. AICc values are marked with an * if models were significantly different from the null model using a likelihood ratio test. The best fit models are italicised.
