Abstract:The wild animal management and monitoring is important in field of biodiversity conservation. The quality and quantity of the monitoring data depends on the adopted technique and methods. Collecting fixed data is a very important work of the management and monitoring, which can be achieved by means of line transects and radio-tracking. The population, home range, migrate way, habitat exploit and selection of the target species can be analyzed based on the fixed data. The GPS collars settled on wild animal individuals record the activity information by the GPS approach. Compared with the two methods mentioned earlier, the GPS collar system would be more convenient to acquire abundant high quality data effectively, and to provide more reliable scientific basis serving for wild animal management and biodiversity conservation.
