Estimated population–level use of the sea ice by arctic foxes using dynamic Brownian bridge movement models. Estimations for the month of a December, b January and c February, with black arrows indicating the spatio–temporal hotspots detected on the sea ice of Navy Board Inlet (Nunavut, Canada) during winter 2010–2011. The 25, 50, 75 and 99 % cumulative probability contours are shown in blue, with the darkest shades indicating the highest probabilities. Areas where more than 3 foxes occurred are delimited by a red line. Individual home ranges on Bylot Island are delimited by black lines. d Estimation for the month of November, when no hotspot was detected (shown for reference). Note that the coastline can appear as a relatively highly used area due to the back-and-forth crossing of foxes from their inland range to the sea ice, and to the home ranges located along the coast
