Case Study: University of Vienna researchers track poison frogs with NTQ-2 NanoTags

You are here: Home > About biotelemetry > Case studies > U. of Vienna researchers track poison frogs

We received this positive report about our NanoTag transmitters on December 1, 2014 from University of Vienna PhD candidate Andrius Pašukonis, who wrote:

"We just returned after a very successful field trip from Peru. The NTQ-2 tags worked great and we found the built quality to be excellent and ... the battery lifetime is also significantly longer.

"We got excellent results from this field season and we are already planning more tracking projects with these and other poison dart frogs. I’m attaching a couple of photographs for our recent field trip. In one of the photographs, the male frog is transporting tadpoles.

"The name of the frog is Ameerega trivittata (three-striped poison frog) and the photos were taken at the Panguana field station in the amazonian Peru ... by me (Andrius Pašukonis) as part of a project with Matthias-Claudio Loretto and Walter Hödl, all of us from the University of Vienna ... the project was funded by the German Herpetological Society (DGHT) and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF)."
