Description:

Genet Genetta genetta Linnaeus, 1758 habitat selection was studied through midden locations in a mountain area of central Spain both at macrohabitat scale (tree, scrub, rock and pasture covers). Among the available habitats, genet preferred dehesas, due to their good trophic resources and shelter availability. Genet was scarce over 1200 meters, probably because of thermic restrictions. The most important microhabitat variables selected as faecal sites were rock-cover (refuges) and shrub-cover (feeding places and refuges). Other papameters of functional significance related to midden location were sociaal communication and territoriality. There was no selection both sites with a high degree of tree cover (microhabitat) and for sites near to watercourses.
