Watching animals from space: understanding behaviour & ecology through biologging, remote sensing, and movement models
From Sandra Hedberg on May 23rd, 2018
We are living in exciting times: On October 12, a rocket will be on its way to the ISS, carrying a device that will revolutionise how we track animal movement from space. Thanks to advances in mobile communication technologies, we can spy into the lives of ever smaller, and ever more individuals. Next year will also be the start for the international ”Biologging Decade”. But what is biologging, and what can we learn from it?
During the talk, I will introduce the main ideas of biologging and different sensors that are available. I will also talk about some exciting findings that have emerged from using animal telemetry in recent years, and present some of my own work with tracks from ducks, geese, and bats.
