Ecological sciences deal with the way organisms interact with one another and their
environment. Using sensors to measure various physical and biological characteristics has been a common activity since long ago. However the advent of more accurate technologies and increasing computing capacities demand a better combination of information collected by sensors on multiple spatial, temporal and biological scales.
This book provides an overview of current sensors for ecology and makes a strong case for deploying integrated sensor platforms. By covering technological challenges
as well as the variety of practical ecological applications, this text is meant to be an invaluable resource for students, researchers and engineers in ecological sciences.
This book benefited from the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) funds, and includes 16 contributions by leading experts in french laboratories.
