From the Back Cover:

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 comprehensive 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 analyses, 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.
The easy style provides comprehensive information on how to choose tags and receiving equipment, including automated systems for locations or telemetry data, and on how to work with manufacturers to obtain and use equipment effectively.
Tagging techniques and welfare are important considerations. There are descriptions of how different types of animal can be tracked in the field and how pilot studies with appropriate software can provide robust results for refereed journals. The last two chapters contain many diagrams and equations to help explain the principles that underlie different data analysis techniques. Finally a glossary of technical terms complements two appendices of useful suppliers' addresses, in postal and electronic format.

About the Author:

Robert Kenward started radio-tracking wildlife in 1974, monitoring released goshawks as a part of a thesis study at Oxford University. After learning to build radio-tags for projects in Sweden, he became a government biologist, working mainly on raptors and squirrels. More than 50 of his publications involve radio-tagging, including the Ranges suite of analysis software.
