Crested Auklet movement patterns
Watch a video documenting Crested Auklet movement patterns obtained using LAT 2900 geolocators. This video shows the movement of three tagged birds and their stunning triangular migration route.
Monitoring of 4 Namibian cheetahs with Sirtrack GPS Collars for the N/a’an ku sê Research Programme
A March 2013 project update report from the N/a’an ku sê Research Programme about their work monitoring perceived conflict cheetahs in Namibia, with research technology support provided by Sirtrack.
Timing of breeding carries over to influence migratory departure in a songbird
Video summary and a link to an article entitled "Timing of breeding carries over to influence migratory departure in a songbird: an automated radiotracking study" by Greg W. Mitchell,
Amy E. M. Newman, Martin Wikelski and D. Ryan Norris, published in April 2012 in the Journal of Animal Ecology.
Monitoring yellowﬁn tuna with LTD_2310 geolocators
Summary of, and link to, an article entitled "Movements, behavior, and habitat utilization of yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) in the Pacific Ocean off Baja California, Mexico, determined from archival tag data analyses, including unscented Kalman filtering" by Kurt M. Schaefer, Daniel W. Fuller, and Barbara A. Block, published in 2011 in Fisheries Research.
Silver-haired Bat — Migratory Stopover Ecology
Researchers captured silver-haired bats (Lasionycteris noctivagans) during fall migration and used a digital radio-telemetry array to monitor their movements over an area of approximately 20 x 40 km, documenting stopover duration and departure direction.
Geolocators reveal new wintering areas of European Nightjar
Light-based geolocators have been used to find the previously unknown African wintering areas of European Nightjars (Caprimulgus europaeus) breeding in Dorset, southern England.
Radio-tracking an Emperor Dragonfly (Anax imperator)
Radio tracking is a popular technique for studying animal movement and behaviour, allowing you to locate individuals at any time, not just when they are visible. New lighter transmitters allow smaller species to be tracked. This case study describes a radio tracking study done on the largest British Dragonfly species.
Radio Telemetry and Migration Stopovers: Long Point's Digital Array
Most telemetry studies on stopover ecology have focussed on small scales, but the Phil Taylor lab (Acadia University, Atlantic Cooperative Wildlife Ecology Research Network, Bird Studies Canada) is tackling larger scale questions with Lotek Wireless / Biotrack (Canada & UK).
Unlocking the Secrets of the Ocean with Dr. Barbara Block
An excellent example of how partnerships result in better biotelemetry devices can be found in our collaboration with Dr. Barbara A. Block
Sustaining the Pacific Northwest Fishery
Of all the many partnerships that Lotek has enjoyed over the years, one of our most long-standing, productive and rewarding to date is not with an individual researcher, manager or agency, but with an entire watershed’s efforts to sustain its fishery.
Seeing the Big Picture at Queen’s University’s New Ecological Observatory
As a designer of tools for scientists, Lotek is a strong believer in supporting scientific research.
