ABSTRACT: On the occasion of the publication of the proceedings of the Third International Biologging Science Symposium, we present a summary of the incidence of biologging in studies of animal behaviour. Studies investigating diving activity were used as a proxy to examine the use of a biologging technology. Specifically, studies referenced in the Penguiness Book, an internet-based diving database, were used to examine: (1) on which taxa of diving animals biologging is principally used; (2) which countries are the principal users and producers of biologging technology; and (3) the incidence of this approach in peer-reviewed publications. Each of these items is discussed in the light of the intrinsic limitations of biologging approaches.
