  1. Median Euclidean distances in meters for the four regions in Florida. Results from the Wilcoxon test with the p-value being significant at the 0.0036 after the Bonferroni correction. Horse = median (meters) from horse cases to habitat type. Region = median (meters) from random possible points to habitat type. LR=low density residential, CP=crop and pastureland, UHF=upland hardwood forest, VNW=vegetated non-forested wetland, TP=tree plantations, WFM=wetland forested mixed, UCF=upland coniferous forest, WCF=wetland coniferous forest, U=urban, W=water, MR=medium density residential, WHF=wetland hardwood forest, and SB=shrub and brush land, and M=mining.
