Camera Trapping: Wildlife Management And Research
Camera Trapping: Wildlife Management and Research
Camera trapping in wildlife management and research is a growing global phenomenon. The technology is advancing very quickly, providing unique opportunities for collecting new biological knowledge.
Camera Trapping provides a benchmark of the international developments and uses of camera traps for monitoring wildlife for research and management. Four major themes are presented: case studies demonstrating camera trapping for monitoring; the constraints and pitfalls of camera technologies; design standards and protocols for camera trapping surveys; and the identification, management and analyses of the myriad images that derive from camera trapping studies. The final chapter provides future directions for research using camera traps.
In addition, remarkable photographs are included, showing interesting, enlightening and entertaining images of animals "doing their thing".
"This is a valuable publication, bringing together information from studies that have utilised camera traps at locations throughout the world and for a variety of species and applications. It should be useful to academics, researchers and students, as well as wildlife/land managers. Further, it should facilitate the more informed planning, use and interpretation of camera trapping projects." - British Ecological Society Bulletin, August 2015
