'...an essential reference handbook for postgraduate students and researchers in higher education and industry who are involved in studies of reproductive and foraging behaviour and of the feeding and dispersal in vertebrates and invertebrates.' Ethology, Ecology and Evolution 'A practical sourcebook devoted to the applications of video techniques in the study of movement in organisms in the field and laboratory. It describes in detail systems used for exploring the behavior and ecology of animals as diverse as protozoa, molluscs, mites, predatory and flying insects, as well as domestic, wild, and farm vertebrates.' SciTech Book News (April 1994) 'The final judgement on a book like this is whether it motivates one to run right out and buy a video camera and associated computer equipment or not. Given the resources, we would do so (in the mean time, we recommend borrowing time on a colleague's system). ...If you are new to applications of video technology and think that you may have a good situation for an application, then a first look at a couple of the chapters in this book is an excellent way to examine the practical difficulties that you may have.' Acta Oecologica
