Tracking Animal Identity, Paperback Book

Description

Identity is vital to any scientific research but it is not always easy to establish, especially with groups of species that look very similar, or those with secretive lifestyles.

A number of fascinating techniques are used to establish species' identities, including recording sounds, monitoring tree damage, DNA analysis, and carbon dating fossil finds.

Case studies include: woodpeckers, fur analysis, and identifying bats in flight.
