Radio Tracking and Animal Populations is a succinct synthesis of emerging technologies and their applications to the empirical and theoretical problems of population assessment. The book is divided into sections designed to encompass the various aspects of animal ecology that may be evaluated using radiotelemetry technology - experimental design, equipment and technology, animal movement, resource selection, and demographics. Wildlife biologists at the leading edge of new developments in the technology and its application have joined forces.

This book is a general guide to radio tracking and activity monitoring with pulsed-signal radio tags. The most elementary tags are used to find the animal so that it can be watched, captured or monitored in other ways. Tags can also have their pulses modulated by a variety of simple sensor sub-circuits to telemeter temperature, posture, movement, compass orientation and other aspects of animal activity. The text follows a sequence designed to guide the novice user through all aspects of radio tagging from the planning of a project and the choice of equipment, through field techniques to data analysis. There are details on tag construction and mounting both externally and by implantation. This book will be invaluable to scientists in all branches of ecology and wildlife research, both in showing ways in which radio tagging can be of use and in giving practical details on how to use this technology.

Carnivore Ecology And Conservation

Animals that must hunt and kill for at least part of their living are inherently interesting to many people and the role that carnivores play in biological communities attract interest from ecologists and conservation biologists. Conflicts with human activities stimulate continual debates about the management of carnivore populations, and throughout the world people seek workable solutions for human/carnivore coexistence. This concise yet authoritative handbook describes research methods and techniques for the study and conservation of all terrestrial carnivore species. Particular attention is paid to techniques for managing the human/carnivore interface. Descriptions of the latest methodologies are supported by references to case studies, whilst dedicated boxes are used to illustrate how a technique is applied to a specific land cover type, species, or particular socio-economic context. The book describes the most recent advances in modelling the patterns of animal distributions, movements, and use of land cover types, as well as including the most efficient methods to trap, handle, and mark carnivores. Carnivores are biogeographically diverse and whilst extensive scientific research has investigated many aspects of carnivore biology, not all species have been equally covered. This book is unique in its intention to provide practical guidance for carrying out research and conservation of carnivores across all species and areas of the world.

With the substantial advances in the miniaturization of electronic components, wildlife biologists now routinely monitor the movements of free-ranging animals with radio-tracking devices. This book explicates the many analytical techniques and computer programs available to extract biological information from the radio tracking data. Presentation of software programs for solving specific problems Design of radio-tracking studies Mechanics of data collection Estimation of position by triangulation Graphic presentation of animal migration, dispersal, fidelity, and association Home range estimation, habitat utilization, and estimation of survival rates and population size
