The module will introduce students to new technological approaches for monitoring species, populations and individuals. Students will learn spatial analyses, including geographical information systems (GIS), as applied to species distribution modeling, habitat assessment and studies of animal movement. As part of this, we will look at the role of technologies such as drones, and remote sensing methods, including LiDAR. We will also examine the use of bioacoustics, camera trapping, environmental DNA sampling, and the application of genomics in molecular ecology. Finally, we will consider the emerging role of citizen science and social media platforms. Examples will cover animals and plants from terrestrial and aquatic systems.
