Conolophus pallidus
Our purpose here is to examine an extensive data set of iguana locations with respect to the intensity of use of sites within the home ranges. We analyzed locations of free-ranging Conolophus pallidus to determine the core areas within the home ranges, and to describe how the sizes of core areas compare between sexes and among seasons. We also examined the core areas with respect to the activity centers to determine the usefulness of the activity centers as an indication of the most intensively used portion of the home range.
