Resource Selection and Space Use of Three-Toed Box Turtles

Principle Investigators: Joshua Millspaugh PhD. Chadwick D. Rittenhouse, William D. Dijak

Institution and/or Affiliation: University of Missouri

Project Description:  

Resource selection is a multi-staged process of behavioral responses to various resource
cues or stimuli. Previous research suggests some aspects of resource selection may be
inherent (i.e., genetic predisposition) or based on early experience and that individuals
respond to certain resource cues but not to others.
