Evaluation of a novel wildlife telemetry device with data transfer capabilities
MetadataShow full item record
The construction of low-cost, advanced Global Positioning System (GPS) telemetry systems for wildlife tracking is growing in popularity, especially systems that can communicate with each other to track contacts and, more recently, transfer data. This novel function represents a step forward from current technology because it allows researchers to retrieve data from collars that have been damaged or lost. It also elucidates broad networks of interactions between individuals to monitor disease spread and social preference. I tested the communication and data transfer capabilities of a low-cost, ...
