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

Editorial Reviews

"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
