Table 2 Area and habitat composition of home ranges of tracked Lutjanus analis, created using 95% and 50% minimum convex polygons (MCPs) and Brownian bridge movement models (BBMMs)

From: Home range characteristics and diel patterns in space use of mutton snapper, Lutjanus analis, in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

  1. Percent habitat composition was derived from the intersection of MCPs with the benthic habitat map, and categorized as seagrass, coral reef, pavement and other (bare sand, artificial); habitat selection index (HSI) is indicated in parentheses for each habitat type in 95% MCPs
