ECOTONE TELEMETRY GRANT 2018
Telemetry methods in innovative ecological, eco-physiological or zoological wildlife studies
that may employ:
GPS tracking with GSM, GPRS or UHF data download;
activity monitoring based on acceleration activity reports;
raw acceleration data analyses;
use of diving duration or TDR data.
Two fully funded grants, or one fully funded and two partially funded grants will be awarded, maximal funding includes:
consultation and support from Ecotone specialists for logger start-up, deployment and data collection at the early stages of the project;
GPS loggers from Ecotone (up to 20 devices per project);
data transfer costs for loggers throughout the project;
reimbursement of field work expenses (up to 5000 EUR);
potential sponsored participation in the international conference.
project duration: 1-2 years;
studies on birds, terrestrial mammals and bats will be considered
the minimal body weight of tracked animals >100g
research should have innovative nature;
collection and processing of all kinds of data available from the loggers
presentation at international conferences (oral presentation or workshop) the preliminary results within project duration and final results after completing the project.
submitting a publication in journal with a high impact factor within one year of research completion;
trapping and deployment methods must conform with accepted practices or experiences of the provider.
project must be designed as to not endanger any wildlife population and cannot be invasive in relation to examined group of animals nor shall endanger local population chosen as a research object;
external harness, collars or glue-on methods must be used to attach loggers (no implants or subcutaneous implanted hooks or anchors)
project cannot be joined with other researches, in which telemetry devices of other
companies will be used.
We support science.
Selected projects sponsored by Ecotone and Ecotone Telemetry
Our support program "Do Science & Get Support" started from 2009 is back!! We have received a lot of request about possible support and we decided to keep this project as long as possible.
Terms and conditions are as easy as before - publish your research results gained using our mist nets and you will be supported with equipment free of charges! Terms and Conditions - detailed information HERE
Till now we have received requests and gave support for project and researchers from all over the world!
Do not hesitate! ONLY 3 easy steps to get Ecotone's support!!
This year we will support The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney - Cockatoo Research with Ecotone logger. We do hope this will help researchers to collect a lot of important data and support project! More informations soon available on RBGS web page. (LINK)
