Abstract

Location records such as those frequently obtained in small mammal studies were obtained from hypothetical home ranges of known circularity. These home ranges were distinctly oblong, and such data will usually be inadequate for measuring home range shape. The consequences of this in measuring home range size and the valid uses of such data are described.
