Summary
Retaining the introductory flavor of the now classic First Edition, this revision includes all the latest techniques in the field. New information on methods of radio tag harnessing, new sections on satellite tracking techniques and new types of data analysis are all included. Still the only comprehensive, up-to-date, introduction to this fundamental technique for wildlife and behavioral biologists.* A unique guide to the subject* Full coverage of the very latest techniques in both terrestrial and satellite tracking* Detailed, practical guidance in how to fit tags, track animal
