dc.description.abstract "Two female raccoons on St. Catherines Island, Georgia, concentrated their activity in July 1979, on a smaller home range than they used in April, perhaps because of care of young. A male studied in the same area did not appreciably change his home range, which was larger than those of the females. One of the females remained in the area mapped in 1979 for at least 5.5 years. Home ranges for both sexes were smaller than ranges, which had also been measured by radiotelemetry, on the north part of the island. Perhaps this was because the animals' needed resources are available in a smaller area as a result of a finer interspersion of areas of woods and marshes in the southern part"--P. [1]. en_US
