Wolverine monitoring analysis and reporting

June 2016 - June 2020


Participating Agencies

  • Montana Fish, Wildlife, & Parks

The multi-state wolverine monitoring program will produce a large amount of data and the resulting analysis will be complex. Given the importance of the data and scrutiny that the program will receive, a thorough and rigorous analysis is important. I will lead the analysis and reporting, working closely Dr. Jake Ivan. We will analyze the wolverine camera trapping data to estimate occupancy and distribution as functions of environmental covariates and spatial autocorrelation within the pre-defined wolverine sampling frame.
