Deer movement and resource selection during Hurricane Irma: implications for extreme climatic events and wildlife

Heather Abernathy, Daniel Crawford, Elina Garrison, Richard Chandler, L. Mike Conner, Karl Miller & Michael Cherry
Extreme climatic events (ECEs) are increasing in frequency and intensity and this necessitates understanding their influence on organisms. Animal behavior may mitigate the effects of ECEs, but field studies are rare because ECEs are infrequent and unpredictable.

We report on an opportunistic case study of behavioral responses exhibited by a large mammal during an ECE, mitigation...
