Abstract

One of the most difficult challenges in ecology is understanding the costs and benefits for animals living in complex landscapes under highly variable environmental conditions. Here, the authors show how accelerometers attached to radiocollars can be used to assess spatial and temporal variation in energetic costs facing free-ranging caribou in Canada's boreal forest.
