...Hattie Bartlam-Brooks; Simon Wilshin; Tatjana Hubel; Stephen Hailes; Emily Bennitt; Alan M. Wilson ABSTRACT Animals need to navigate between resources such as water, food and shelter, and how they achieve this is likely to vary with species. Here, using high-accuracy GPS data, we studied repeated...

..., ecology and movements for wild, free-living short-beaked echidnas. To assess locomotion in its complex natural environment, we attached both GPS and accelerometer loggers to the back of echidnas in both spring and summer. We found that the locomotor biomechanics of echidnas is unique, with lower stride...

... affected by wind speed and direction. To investigate the effect of wind conditions on take-off and cruising flight behavior, we equipped 14 European shags Phalacrocorax aristotelis with a back-mounted GPS logger to measure position and hence ground speed, and a neck-mounted accelerometer to record wing...

... in the context of resource allocation. Studying foraging behaviour alongside food load rates to chicks provides a useful system for understanding the foraging decisions made during parent–offspring conflict. Using simultaneously deployed GPS and time–depth recorders, we examined the provisioning strategies...

... navigation in familiar territory have received less attention. With the recent advent of global positioning system (GPS) data loggers small enough to be carried by pigeons, the role of visual environmental features in guiding navigation over familiar areas is beginning to be understood, yet, surprisingly, we...

... interpolation method, and vice versa . Overall, the occurrence of more accurate locations using curves was between 40 and 60% in geolocation-like tracks, and between 30 and 70% in Argos and Argos-like GPS tracks ( Fig. 3 ). For 21 of the 24 geolocation-like tracks (87.5%), 19 of the 27 Argos tracks (70.4...
