  20. 20. Editor-in-Chief: Peter Klimley (USA) Animal Biotelemetry is devoted specifically to serve as an outlet for publishing the results of studies utilizing telemetric techniques to understand physiological, behavioral, and ecological mechanisms in both terrestrial and marine species. Areas of interest include: Research utilizing electronic tags to elucidate the behaviour, ecology and physiology of species’ Innovations in design of biotelemetric devices Analytical methods, software and techniques used in animal biotelemetry For more information visit www.animalbiotelemetry.c om Now accepting submissions !
