The recent affordability of GPS technology and satellite telemetry has
revolutionised the study of animal movement, allowing to follow individual
animals to remote places at high spatial and temporal resolution. The emergence
of highly resolved massive datasets on animal movement has raised new
questions and challenges to the field, compelling the need for new methods to
analyse and model movement data. It is in this context that the distinct term
movement ecology has emerged ...

(2000) has used radio-telemetry data and capture- recapture data to study
movement, but used a different model from our model. Radio-telemetry has been
used extensively to study animal movement in recent years. It would be possible
to use capture-recapture or tag-return methods together with radio-telemetry to
study movements within a meta-population system. For the models described
here, the decomposition of transition probabilities into survival and movement
probabilities ...

Over the same period that radio telemetry has provided a wealth of information
on the ways in which animals move, interact, and utilize their environment, a
separate mathematical literature on mechanistic models of animal movement has
developed based on the analysis of correlated random walks. These two areas of
research ... to many animal ecologists. As a result, the analysis of empirical home
range data has relied almost exclusively on purely descriptive statistical methods.

Research on animal-dispersed plants has progressed from directly observing
animal movement, to tracking the animals with radio-telemetry (see, for example,
Murray 1988; Westcott & Graham 2000; Spiegel & Nathan 2007). ... on global
positioning systems (GPS) have revolutionized the quality, quantity and scale of
animal tracking data in the wild; this, in turn, also improved the input parameters

Conclusion Any statistical model of the successive locations of an animal induces
a corresponding model of the relative positions of successive locations. The
purpose of this note has been to illustrate ... Although these results are mainly of
theoretical interest, they do convey an important message: it is not possible to
separate the model for locations from the model for relative positions of
successive locations (and ultimately from the model of movements). Most direct
models of animal ...
