Can Landscape Composition Predict Movement Patterns and Site Occupancy by Blanding's Turtles?: A Multiple Scale Study in Québec, Canada

Gabrielle Fortin
As habitat loss and fragmentation are major causes of decline in animal species, studying habitat requirements in these species is a key component of their recovery. I investigated the relationship between landscape composition and habitat use of Blanding’s turtles, Emydoidea blandingii, a freshwater turtle threatened by habitat loss and road mortality on most of its Canadian range. In 2010, I conducted a radio-telemetry survey of 44 Blanding’s turtles in southern Québec, Canada, and modelled their...
