Posterior estimates for selection coefficients from path selection analysis on Mojave desert tortoises. Results for natural terrain covariates indicate that tortoises exhibit selection against high levels of slope, and selection for higher habitat suitability, perennial vegetation cover, and low but not high levels of wash characteristics. Coefficients for human disturbance features suggest that tortoises select to move farther distances from roads, while selecting to move along impassible linear barriers (fences, flood control berms, railroad)
