    Reproduction (only universally constant function)
    number
    frequency
    requirements
    partner (may be necessary, but not modeled)
    minimum health
    Death
    probabilistic
    potentially as a function of x (age, health, location, etc)
    point source (i.e. eaten by other agent, killed by competitive conspecific, etc)
    Movement
    motivation
    reproduction
    mate-seeking
    long distance dispersal (preserve/enrich gene pool)
    competition avoidance
    feeding
    social or not?
    move independently
    influenced to some degree by a flocking-type mechanism
    habitat preference
    safety
    habitat preference (probability of predation)
    limits
    territoriality
    hard boundary (?)
    distance to origin (central place foraging)
    scent-defined (marten)
    distance
    food / energy limitation
    time
    linear distance
    Feeding
    type
    hunting
    browsing
    representation of resource availability
    individuals
    bulk resource as a function of habitat (population model)
    influenced by habitat change
    natural succession of habitats
    exogenous modification (i.e. by humans, catastrophic events like fire, windstorms)
    influenced by target species (ie reduction by foraging)
    basic population modeling (ie. voles)
    Social structure
    tolerances
    sex-specific
    familial
    age-specific
    intolerant behaviors
    avoidance
    fighting
    to death
    to submission
    reinforce social structure
    reduce health
    result in avoidance
    inter-specific interactions
    ignore
    compete
    Environmental Perception
    what can they sense
    other individuals
    habitat differences
    with what fidelity
    habitat types
    age/sex of individuals
    how far they can sense them
    if they are able to sense (ie. see) differentially in different habitats
    how can one see across a clearing?

    Reproduction
    Note: this was my original brainstorm; need to take into account other proposed development strategies (ie. Railsback and Grimm, movement ecology paradigm) to compare/contrast and revisit - SW
    Abstraction of Behavior
    I've begun by trying to organize an outline of what I consider relevant animal behaviors that can be used as a starting point to try and abstract basic methods/functionality that can be applied to all critters.

    Forest Assessment 2010
    contains some information about % in each cover type for both provinces
    also contains some very basic information about ownership and parcel size
    in general, too vague to be of use (statewide estimates of parcel (not stand) sizes)

    Image Segmentation

    leaf-off images appear to do the best job (vs. leaf-on and composite)
    question about minimum segmentation size - 100, 500, 1000, or 1500 pixels?

    compare segmentation results to stand size stats from NIPF owners?

    Image segmentation
    leaf-off images appear to do the best job (vs. leaf-on and composite)
    question about minimum segmentation size - 100, 500, 1000, or 1500 pixels?
    what size is most relevant to marten?
    what size produces distribution of stand sizes most similar to any actual data?
    need to mask out non-forest
    compare segmentation results to stand size stats from NIPF owners?
