Special Issue "The Application of Camera Trap Technology in Field Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2019).
Interests: cryptic wildlife; survey tools; wildlife management; wildlife monitoring; wildlife survey
Camera trapping is used extensively around the world for survey, monitoring, and management-related activities relating to wildlife. As the technology improves so too does the rate at which raw data are collected. This presents some interesting logistical and technical challenges for researchers as they return from the field and attempt to make sense of pattern in their datasets. This Special Issue of Animals will explore some of the major emerging themes in the field of modern-day camera trapping, including (i) innovative ways in which the technology is being used in a field situation; (ii) the various ways in which camera traps can be optimally set in the field to collect data; (iii) the use of automated intelligence in identifying wildlife species from image files, and; (iv) the role of citizen science in assisting interpretation of images.
