Abstract White-bearded wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) are the dominant herbivores found across grassland savannas of East Africa. Known to be particularly important to ecosystem diversity and function, many resident populations of wildebeest have become threatened with extinction over the past few decades. Surprisingly little is known about the movements of individual wildebeest. Using data from GPS collared wildebeest across three study areas in southwest Kenya, this dissertation increases our understanding of the response of wildebeest to differing levels of landscape disturbance. Specifically, I focus on five objectives: (1) describe the movements of wildebeest across three study areas in southwest Kenya with varying degrees of anthropogenic and natural disturbance; (2) compare the movements of resident wildebeest with the movements of Serengeti migrants; (3) assess the physiological stress response in wildebeest populations as it relates to landscape disturbance; (4) evaluate the space use of GPS collared wildebeest between study area and season; and (5) incorporate GPS movement data and an analysis of space use into an agent-based modeling simulation to evaluate the use of a hypothetical wildlife corridor to re-connect former habitat ranges of the species.
