Study design used to assess arctic fox habitat selection drivers within the goose colony of Bylot Island. We used goose egg hatching and gradual emancipation of fox cubs as a phenological transition to assess temporal variations in fox habitat selection (a). We collected movement data during two periods from territorial foxes by tracking them with GPS collars. Territory edges were mapped by calculating a kernel utilization density for each individual while reproductive status and location of dens were assessed in the field (b five individual territories shown during goose incubation in 2019). We classified individual location data into active and resting behavioural states using hidden Markov models (c and d). Five habitat categories were identified in the study area from a satellite image (e) while goose nest density was mapped from field surveys (f)
