The use of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) technology within the fields of ecology and biology has increased over recent years. Technological improvements—particularly multi-frequency capability—have brought more reliability and accuracy, especially in forests and areas with steep topography. In the May issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researchers tested multi-constellation multi-frequency modules for monitoring wildlife and compared them to single-frequency collars.

Other articles examine management practices to improve red wolf survival, disturbance of wintering waterbirds by simulated road traffic, male elk survival and antler size, and more.
