With the substantial advances in the miniaturization of electronic components, wildlife biologists now routinely monitor the movements of free-ranging animals with radio-tracking devices. This book explicates the many analytical techniques and computer programs available to extract biological information from the radio tracking data. Key features include: presentation of software programs for solving specific problems; design of radio-tracking studies; mechanics of data collection; estimation of position by triangulation; graphic presentation of animal migration, dispersal, fidelity, and association; and, home range estimation, habitat utilization, and estimation of survival rates and population size.
