Rota, Christopher T.; Millspaugh, Joshua J.; Kesler, Dylan C.; Lehman, Chad P.; Rumble, Mark A.; Jachowski, Catherine M. B. 2013. A re-evaluation of a case-control model with contaminated controls for resource selection studies. Journal of Animal Ecology. doi: 10.1111/1365-2656.12092.

A common sampling design in resource selection studies involves measuring resource attributes at sample units used by an animal and at sample units considered available for use. Few models can estimate the absolute probability of using a sample unit from such data, but such approaches are generally preferred over statistical methods that estimate a relative probability of use.
