Table 1 Variables used to quantify seed dispersal by red deer with a general mechanistic dispersal model [22]

From: The importance of individual movement and feeding behaviour for long-distance seed dispersal by red deer: a data-driven model

Variable How determined? Variation between deer individuals Temporal variation
Seed load, Q Germination experiment Individual-specific Month-specific
Displacement distance, d Movement trajectories Individual-specific Month-specific
Seed passage time, p Feeding experiment [15] Averaged across deer individuals
  1. The table shows how each variable was measured and whether its quantification accounted for variation between deer individuals and months, respectively.
