Table 3 Assessment of top model performance (selected by the lowest Akaike Information Criterion score) by classification rate (proportion of correctly classified kill and non-kill sites), sensitivity (proportion of true kill sites correctly classified), and specificity (proportion of true non-kill sites correctly classified)

From: Identification of carnivore kill sites is improved by verified accelerometer data

Black bear 0.50 0.64 0.01 0.36 0.12 0.64 0.00
Bobcat 0.54 0.60 0.02 0.34 0.06 0.66 0.01

  1. The cut-off value was determined by the minimum distance between the three metrics for model assessment to maximize correct classification of kill and non-kill sites. Standard error (SE) for each metric is also displayed. Upper Peninsula of Michigan, USA, 2013–2015
