Mammals and humans Field techniques for studying mammals

There are two general reasons for studying mammals in the field. The first is to provide numbers that are needed for biodiversity measures or population management; the second is to provide natural history information that is needed to better understand species' requirements or their roles within the natural community. This chapter provides broad guidelines that would assist someone in selecting appropriate field techniques. References provided at the end of the chapter provide more details on both study design and specific techniques.
