A Bayesian optimal escape model reveals bird species differ in their capacity to habituate to humans

Nicholas Sutton, Michael Weston, Patrick Guay, Jenna Tregoweth & James O'Dwyer
The capacity to habituate to, or tolerate, the close proximity of humans varies among wildlife species and may mediate population and species viability. Some species readily habituate to human proximity while others remain sensitive. These differences are important for predicting human impact on wildlife, but can be difficult to quantify given wildlife responses are highly idiosyncratic and are often context-dependent. A general method for assimilating multiple sources of information and variation in individual responses is...
