Aims and scope

Animal Biotelemetry is an open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes the results of studies utilizing telemetric techniques (including biologgers) to understand physiological, behavioural, and ecological mechanisms in a broad range of environments (e.g. terrestrial, freshwater and marine) and taxa. The journal also welcomes descriptions and validations of newly developed tagging techniques and tracking technologies, as well as methods for analyzing telemetric data.

Featured Collection: Sensing the inner space

This thematic series addresses advances, gaps, and roadmaps for physiological measurements in the field laboratory.

Our Editors-in-Chief

Kim Holland, Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, United States of America

Kim Holland founded the Pelagic Fisheries and Shark Research Groups at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology where he holds the position of Research Professor.  Much of his research involves studying the movements and physiology of large marine fishes as they move through their natural environments.  To accomplish this, he has worked with electronic tag manufacturers to develop and deploy a range of novel tag types.  

Markus Horning, Alaska Marine Science Association, LLC, United States of America

Markus Horning is Research Director at the Alaska Marine Science Association, LLC, a private technology-oriented marine research entity in Seward, Alaska, and he holds affiliate faculty appointments at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and Fairbanks. He has used biotelemetry as a tool since the early 1980’s on many marine vertebrate species including pinnipeds, seabirds and reptiles. He has been instrumental in developing life-long vital rate monitors for marine homeotherms, and in the development, integration and application of novel sensors for biologgers.
