Conceptual scheme of a mixed Wireless Sensor Network. The network is composed of mobile loggers deployed on animals (circles), equipped with GPS unit for localization, fixed loggers deployed on focal resources (squares) and a base station (triangle). Grey-filled forms denote the presence of a modem on the unit for remote data retrieval. Mobile loggers can be in contact via radio with each other (dash-dot line). Data download can also happen via radio through contact detection (dotted lines), either between mobile and fixed loggers (and from here to the base station) or directly from the mobile loggers to the base station
