Tracking small flying animals as they travel over continental-scale distances is a difficult logistical and engineering challenge. Although no tracking system works well with all species, improvements to traditional technologies, such as satellite tracking, along with innovations related to global positioning systems, cellular networks, solar geolocation, radar, and information technology are improving our understanding of when and where birds go during their annual cycles and informing numerous scientific disciplines, including evolutionary biology, population ecology, and global change. The recent developments described in this article will help us answer many long-standing questions about animal behavior and life histories.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Thorup, Kasper</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Wikelski, Martin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Technology on the move: Recent and forthcoming innovations for tracking migratory birds</dcterms:title> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: BioScience ; 61 (2011), 9. - pp. 689-698</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Kays, Roland</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
