Results of the statistical analyses testing the effect of sex on movement metrics during the transience stage of adult Arctic foxes undertaking breeding long-distance dispersal from Bylot Island (Nunavut, Canada). Superscripts indicate use of a permutation test because of non-normality of the data (1), or sample size reduced to n = 26 for All LDD (2).;ID, life stage, sex, and movement status of 170 individuals (148 adults and 22 juveniles) tracked to analyse long-distance dispersal of Arctic foxes from Bylot Island (Nunavut, Canada) between 2007 and 2021. Resident: territory holder; Transient: not a resident (removed from analyses); SDD: short-distance disperser (individual settled < 80 km from initial range); LDD: long-distance disperser (individual moved ≥ 80 km away from its territory with no permanent return); Interrupted LDD: individual may have started to disperse but nature of the movement unconfirmed because of collar failure or fox death (see Note); Removed from analyses: individual removed from analyses as tracking was too short due to premature collar failure or fox death (see Note).;Dynamic display of the transience phase of long-distance dispersal performed by 27 adult and 10 juvenile Arctic foxes equipped with Argos Platform Terminal Transmitters on Bylot Island (Nunavut, Canada) from 2007-2021. Each path line starting from Bylot Island represents one individual.
