We tested a radiotelemetry collar that uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) unit to calculate animal locations.

We placed the collar on a free-ranging moose (Alces alces) and determined how selection of cover types, collar movement, and collar orientation affected GPS locations. On or off the moose, the GPS unit collected a location in >90% of location… CONTINUE READING
