ESR Special: Biologging in conservation

Biologging in conservation


The miniaturisation of biologging devices has revolutionised the quantity, quality and types of data available for animals of ever decreasing body size. Following the ESR Specials Tracking vertebrates for conservation (2008) and Biologging technologies: new tools for conservation (2010), we sought to gather the current state-of-the-art in the field, including overviews of new and emerging technologies, approaches to data analysis and interpretation, and how these findings can inform management decisions and result in positive outcomes for endangered species.


Articles belonging to this Special were published upon completion in the respective volume of ESR. They are listed below as well as on the contents page of the respective volume of publication.


Status: Complete.
