Data from: Resource dispersion and relatedness interact to explain space use in a solitary predator

Malin Aronsson, Mikael Åkesson, Matthew Low, Jens Persson & Henrik Andrén
Resource dispersion or kin selection are commonly used to explain animal spatial and social organization. Despite this, studies examining how these factors interact in wild populations of solitary animals are rare. We used 16 years of individual-level spatial and genetic data to disentangle how resources and relatedness influence spatial organization of a solitary predator, the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx). As expected, space-use overlap between neighbouring individuals increased when food resources were heterogeneous and unpredictably distributed...
