Animal Biotelemetry is an open access peer-reviewed journal that publishes the results of studies utilizing telemetric techniques (including biologgers) to understand physiological, behavioural, and ecological mechanisms in a broad range of environments (e.g. terrestrial, freshwater and marine) and taxa. The journal also welcomes descriptions and validations of newly developed tagging techniques and tracking technologies, as well as methods for analyzing telemetric data.

Editor's profile

A. Peter Klimley

A. Peter Klimley

A. Peter Klimley is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology of the University of California, Davis and Director of the Biotelemetry Laboratory. A major objective of Dr Klimley's Biotelemetry Laboratory is to disseminate innovative remote sensing technology among scientists on an international level.

He was involved in the development of the first automated tag-detecting monitors and was the first to deploy them in the marine environment to ascertain the degree of residency of hammerhead sharks at a seamount and their emigration in response to local upwelling.

Dr Klimley's research activities have earned him the name 'Dr Hammerhead', as he is known to have held his breath while diving 100 feet deep in order to hand-tag hammerhead sharks with a dart gun.
