" Female seasonal means: hot rainy, 1809 m; transitional cold, 1016 m; cold rainy, 476 m; hot dry, 1236 m. Male seasonal means: hot rainy, 1300 m; transitional cold, 470 m; cold rainy, 711 m; hot dry, 1396 m. The sexes do not differ in any season: hot rainy, t = 1.67 ns, df = 14; transitional cold, t = 1.71 ns, df = 8; cold rainy, t = 1.5 ns, df = 16; hot dry, t = 0.50 ns, df = 18. 11 Annual mean for both sexes combined = 1041 m (range 71-2649 m).

' Female reproductive stage means: gestation, 448 m; lactation, 1685 m; nonreproductive, 904 m. Male reproductive stage means: gestation, 632 m; lactation, 1561 m; nonreproductive, 630 m. The sexes do not differ in any reproductive stage: gestation, t = 1.61 ns, df = 22; lactation, t = 0.54 ns, df = 21; nonreproductive, t = 1.26 ns, df = 18. Select monthly values of two females were removed for analysis by reproductive stage. Glow, sampled only in Dec, did not give birth in either year of the study. Blue bore young in the second, but not first, year of study; her Jan and Feb daily distances were not included among lactation values.

d Standard notation for significance values are indicated. *** = 0.001; ** = 0.01, * = 0.05; ns = not significant, i-tests were not performed for months where only a single male value was available. Kruskal-Wallis tests were performed instead and none showed significant sex differences (Feb, H = 2.0 ns, df = 1; Mar, H = 1.8 ns, df= 1; Aug, H = 0.77 ns, df= 1).
