  1. The selection is done on brown bears in southcentral Sweden during long and short distances. The best models are the ones with the lowest AICs having a delta < 4 and with a weight = 1. The delta is the difference between the AIC scores according to the lowest one. logdist corresponds to the logarithmic distance travelled. yday corresponds to day-of-year numbers
