Seasonality, weather and climate affect home range size in roe deer across a wide latitudinal gradient within Europe N Morellet, C Bonenfant, L Börger, F Ossi, F Cagnacci… - Journal of Animal Ecology, 2013
... Among populations, HR size decreased with increasing values for proxies of forage abundance, but increased with increases in seasonality, stochastic variation of temperature, latitude and snow cover. Within populations, roe deer HR size varied over time in relation to seasonality and proxies of forage abundance in a consistent way across the seven populations. Thus, our findings were broadly consistent across the distributional range of this species, demonstrating a strong and ubiquitous link between the amplitude and timing of environmental seasonality and HR size at the continental scale...
