Analysis of Wildlife Radio-Tracking Data by Gary C. White

By Gary C. White

With the great advances within the miniaturization of digital parts, flora and fauna biologists now generally display screen the events of free-ranging animals with radio-tracking units. This ebook explicates the various analytical suggestions and machine courses to be had to extract organic info from the radio monitoring info. Key Features:* Presentation of software program courses for fixing particular problems* Read more...

The trans­ mitter has been successfully used to track a free-ranging bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and the migratory movements of swans (Olor columbianus) nesting in arctic Alaska. Over the past 5 - 8 years there has been a proliferation of experimental studies using satellite transmitters.
