The first in a series of progress reports on species distribution models I’ve been invited to contribute to Progress in Physical Geography was published in 2012. This report focused on spatial autocorrelation and nonstationarity (doi: 10.1177/0309133312442522), the second one is on using simulated data (estimated publication in early 2014).
This project originated as an exploratory study to see how GIScience concepts and methods can be used to analyze and understand movement of and interactions between brown hyenas in Northern Botswana. Correlated random walks were used as a ’null model’ to study movement patterns and interaction rates and several different dynamic interaction metrics were compared. This work was recently published in Transactions in GIS and was supported by a UT Vice President of Research Grant.

Jennifer A Miller is Professor of GIScience and Chair of the Department of Geography and the Environment at the University of Texas at Austin. She joined the faculty at UT-Austin in 2007 after four years at West Virginia University.
Jennifer’s research focuses on the integration of GIScience and biogeography, particularly in the areas of species distribution and animal movement modeling.
