Review quote

"This book will be a welcome reference in the library of those wildlife professionals involved in studies employing the use of radio-telemetry... Most biologists/scientists will find this a very easy book to read and understand, and an excellent reference to have on hand. White and Garrott have pulled together into one book the majority of the analyses techniques for radio-tracking data in use today, and in so doing have provided a valuable contribution to the wildlife profession." --WILDLIFE REVIEW
