|Tracking Animal Identity|
Identity is vital to any scientific research but it is not always easy to establish, especially with groups of species that look very similar, or those with secretive lifestyles. A number of fascinating techniques are used to establish species’ identities, including recording sounds, monitoring tree damage, DNA analysis, and carbon dating fossil finds. Case studies include: woodpeckers, fur analysis, and identifying bats in flight.
Animal Trackers, Pack A of 5
Much technology described in the other four books is to assist in the conservation of animal species. Getting information on numbers, behaviour, and movements helps identify environmental problems that need to be addressed. Sometimes scientists have to intervene to boost animal populations. In addition to traditional methods for doing this, several fascinating new techniques have been developed including satellite imagery to identify and stop illegal logging and drones to identify and stop wildlife poaching.
