Backpack transmitter attachment effects on shorebirds | Questionnaire request
The IWSG have received a request to pass on details of a new study on backpack transmitter attachment effects that is looking for input from shorebird researchers around the globe.
The research team from the USGS lead by Rick Lanctot and Emily Weiser aims to compare the success of various methods of deployment of back-mounted transmitters on shorebirds. For that they are asking for people to download a spreadsheet (access here:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PWzcy3UOrf5eG8i6qaPiEcYlKE1LQRTK/view?usp=sharing) and answer the questions for your particular projects before sending it back to Emily Weiser at email@example.com by the 15th September 2020.
Full details on the original email sent to WHSG Listserv 18th August 2020 can be find here: Backpack-transmitter-attachment-effects-on-shorebirds.pdf.
If you have any further questions or issues with the Google Doc please direct your request to Emily Weiser.
