  • ratmote a sensor platform for Animal Habitat monitoring
    Information Processing in Sensor Networks, 2010
    Co-Authors: Jo Agila Bitsch Link, Thomas Bretgeld, Andre Goliath, Klaus Wehrle

    Abstract:

    In this work, we present RatMote, a new wireless sensor node for subterranean Animal Habitat monitoring. RatMote has been developed for project RatPack, which aims at creating a new method for behavioral research on rats in their natural environment using wireless sensor nodes. Recent development in microcontroller architecture allowed us to design a sensor node which calculates up to 22 times more operations per mAh than the widely used TelosB node. This significant performance and efficiency increase allows us to perform computationally demanding algorithms inside the node, needed for vocalization analysis, localization, and mapping.

  • the interpretation of Habitat preference metrics under use availability designs
    Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, 2010
    Co-Authors: Hawthorne L Beyer, Jason Matthiopoulos, Daniel T Haydon, Juan M Morales, Jacqueline L Frair, Mark Hebblewhite, Michael S Mitchell

    Abstract:

    Models of Habitat preference are widely used to quantify AnimalHabitat relationships, to describe and predict differential space use by Animals, and to identify Habitat that is important to an Animal (i.e. that is assumed to influence fitness). Quantifying Habitat preference involves the statistical comparison of samples of Habitat use and availability. Preference is therefore contingent upon both of these samples. The inferences that can be made from use versus availability designs are influenced by subjectivity in defining what is available to the Animal, the problem of quantifying the accessibility of available resources and the framework in which preference is modelled. Here, we describe these issues, document the conditional nature of preference and establish the limits of inferences that can be drawn from these analyses. We argue that preference is not interpretable as reflecting the intrinsic behavioural motivations of the Animal, that estimates of preference are not directly comparable among different samples of availability and that preference is not necessarily correlated with the value of Habitat to the Animal. We also suggest that preference is context-dependent and that functional responses in preference resulting from changing availability are expected. We conclude by describing advances in analytical methods that begin to resolve these issues.
