Mammal Occurrence - Banff

Mammal Occurrence - Banff Motion-detection cameras are a cost-effective and non-invasive tool used in Banff National Park for sampling mammal populations and estimating species occurrence. Occupancy modelling, which uses detection/non-detection data from cameras, provides a useful and flexible framework for population trend analyses. Data are collected throughout the year across Banff National Park to determine change in the distribution of key animal populations as well as supporting demographic predictions to better inform management. 2022-04-21 Parks Canada jesse.whittington@pc.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentOccupancy modellingremote cameraBanff National Parkwildlife Mammal Occurrence - BanffCSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/59baa0f2-cae0-4fc9-bcc4-6a8b1497f764/resource/085f5a72-af09-4a09-9de1-7dc61077ee69/download/banff_np_forest_mammal_occurence_2008-2020.csv Mammal Occurrence - Banff - Data DictionaryCSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/59baa0f2-cae0-4fc9-bcc4-6a8b1497f764/resource/0e5358ed-2d18-4236-b321-d90b9bc49eb4/download/banff_np_forest_mammal_occurence_2008-2020_data-dictionary.csv
