Figure 2

Utilization distribution from a run of the territorial random walk model with 16 individuals (in a periodic lattice of 25 ×25 sites), a spatial competition strength of Z =32, and with the parameter α that controls the retreat response upon the encounter of foreign marks being 10 [53]. The emerging home ranges have been reconstructed over a time span equal to 2.5 times the decay time \({\mathcal {T}}_{A}\) of the marks. The contour level values of the utilization distribution from the outer most to the inner most, when all present, are 10 −4 multiplied, respectively, by the following factors: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 20, 40, and 80.
