A Frontier Model for Landscape Ecology: The Tapir in Honduras

Kevin Flesher and Eduardo Ley

Econometrics from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: We borrow a frontier specification from the econometrics literature to make inferences about the tolerance of the tapir to human settlements. We estimate the width of an invisible band surrounding human settlements which would act as a frontier or exclusion zone to the tapir to be around 290 meters.
