Summary "A Manual for Wildlife Radio-Tagging replaces the same author's 1987 publication, Wildlife Radio Tagging: Equipment, Field-Techniques and Data Analysis as the standard text in this field. Full and comprehensie coverage is given to the new technologies, such as data acquisition by satellites, programmable tags, global positioning systems, geographic information systems, digital maps and other software. Particular attention is paid to new principles, tag attachment techniques and data analysis, with a full discussion of the planning and data gathering processes that are needed in order to obtain robust results. The number of illustrations has doubled, to 110, and the number of sources quoted has tripled, to more than 650." "Starting with a consideration of how the strengths and weaknesses of radio tagging compare with other marking techniques, the book is full of advice for beginners and experts alike and of immense value to those who may think of supervising projects that include radio tagging."--BOOK JACKET
