of asynchrony. Moreover, each animal’s home range overlapped with home ranges of potential mates other than their part- ner, implying a lack of spatial constraints on polygamy. We suggest that H. whitei mated monogamously because the beneŽ ts of polygamy were reduced by (1) only small differences in

, e.g., a refuge) has a direct effect on the home range that is, the space an animal uses for feeding, refuging or reproducing (Burt, 1943). For this reason, homing and home range represent crucial aspects for the effectiveness of spatial management and conservation measures. For instance, highly

Home range and habitat use are meaningful aspects of a species natural history and very important to consider when it comes to conservation of a species (Johnson, 1980 ). Individuals generally use more intensively a sector of its home range (core area), which covers ∼50% of the total space used
