Table 1 Summaries of Alaska moose (Alces alces gigas) Global Positioning System (GPS) datasets by study area. Information on the number of fixes and the fix success rate are specific to summer (June 1 – August 31). The number of clusters for each population-sex partition refer to the unique combination of individual-year, which were used in our conditional logistic regression models as a clustering variable for estimating robust variance estimates using generalized estimating equations
