Acoustic telemetry - a minimal invasive research method ...or is it?
The establishment of marine reserves is an increasingly important planning tool for conservation. To maximize the effectiveness of such protected areas, decision makers need to detect critical habitats for over-exploited species, a task which requires knowledge of their spatial ecology. Tracking an animal on land is a challenge, but in the marine environment, where humans are physically limited in time and space, it seems a virtually impossible task. In the 1980's scientists
