Overview

Radio Tracking and Animal Populations is a succinct synthesis of emerging technologies and their application to the empirical and theoretical problems of animal population assessment. The book is divided into sections designed to encompass the various aspects of animal ecology that may be evaluated using radio tracking technology - experimental design, equipment and technology, animal movement, resource selection, and demographics. The book is at the leading edge of new developments in this technology and its application. The editors and contributors have provided a synthesis of this fast changing field. Especially useful will be the catalog of software currently available for analyzing the data obtained in radio tracking studies. Any practicing wildlife biologist who already uses radio tracking or plans to use radio tracking will need this book.

Audience: Faculty, researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates interested in animal ecology and demography, wildlife biology, conservation biology, vertebrate zoology and ecology, as well as policy makers and land managers who need to evaluate the quality of contracted animal surveys and impact studies.

From the Publisher
"This book is an important reference for any biologists' bookshelf."
-SOUTHEASTERN NATURALIST (May 2006)

"This book is a must reference for all scientist that work with telemetry or are contemplating telemetry projects..."
-THE CANADIAN FIELD-NATURALIST (2002)

"...I have no doubt that this book will warrant a place in one's library..."
-JOURNAL OF MAMMALOGY (February 2003)

"...is a valuable book that should be of interest to a wide readership...I highly recommend this book for individuals conducting radiotelemerty studies."
—Barry R. Noon for THE AUK (April 2002)

"...concise in the basics, clearly highlights many potential pitfalls and stimulates deeper thinking about what can be achieved with tracking studies."
-Jeremy Lindsell for IBIS (2002)

"...wildlife biologists, managers and students seeking a laudable compilation of readable synopses will find exactly that..."
-Geln A. Sargaent, U.S. Geological Survey Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center for ECOLOGY (2002)

Jeremy Lindsell
If I was embarking on a radio tracking study I would start with this book since it is concise in the basics, clearly highlights many potential pitfalls and stimulates deeper thinking about what can be achieved with tracking studies.
