Data from: Space partitioning in wild, non-territorial mountain gorillas: the impact of food and neighbours

Nicole Seiler, Christophe Boesch, Roger Mundry, Colleen Stephens & Martha M. Robbins
In territorial species, the distribution of neighbours and food abundance play a crucial role in space use patterns but less is known about how and when neighbours use shared areas in non-territorial species. We investigated space partitioning in 10 groups of wild, non-territorial mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei). Using location data, we examined factors influencing daily movement decisions and calculated the per cent overlap of annual kernel home ranges and core areas among neighbours. We...
