About this book

With the advances in miniaturization of electronic components, wildlife biologists now routinely monitor the movements of free-ranging animals with radio-tracking devices. This book explains the many analytical techniques and computer programs available to extract biological information from the data obtained. It presents details of how to design radio-tracking studies, the effects of tagging on the animal, estimating animal locations - by triangulation, home range estimation, habitat analysis, and estimation of survival rates and population size. A work of vital importance to wildlife biologists using this method of study.

This book will be a welcome reference in the library of those wildlife professionals involved in studies employing the use of radio-telemetry... Most biologists/scientists will find this a very easy book to read and understand, and an excellent reference to have on hand. White and Garrott have pulled together into one book the majority of the analyses techniques for radio-tracking data in use today, and in so doing have provided a valuable contribution to the wildlife profession. --WILDLIFE REVIEW
