CAR model effects. General effect of the distance to the sheep, temperature and wind, resulting from the CAR models. Plots show the mean effects in the investigated intervals with 95% confidence intervals. The functions are shown in the investigated interval and the curves will be vertically shifted between catch nights. For both species groups, the level of abundance is above the 95% confidence limits for the distance with minimum catch up to 200 meters from the sheep. Also for both groups, there is a peak activity at just below 16 degrees.
