Table 2 Parameters of the habitat-specific diffusion model

From: The dual role of rivers in facilitating or hindering movements of the false heath fritillary butterfly

Parameter Unit Description
k   Relative habitat preference, i.e. the relative probability of the butterfly being located in the habitat type in question in comparison to the probability of it being located in its breeding habitat (BH; k BH  = 1 by definition).
D m2 d−1 The diffusion coefficient, i.e. the rate of movement within a given habitat type.
m d−1 Mortality, measured as the probability of the butterfly dying during one day.
p   Capture probability, i.e. the probability of the butterfly being captured if it is located at the searched site.
