Where the Animals Go: Technology Meets Zoology in 50 Maps and Graphics

Oliver Uberti & James Cheshire

Until the twentieth century, the study of animals was limited to what a naturalist could observe. 'Tracking animals' meant following their footprints and droppings.

In 1900, scientists began the first bird-banding schemes and observation surveys. By the new millennium, researchers were using radio transmitters, drones, bioacoustics, DNA analysis, cellular networks and GPS to track wildlife.

The authors highlight nine data-collection methods and create fifty stories around these, illustrated by stunning maps and graphics. From how birds avoid tornadoes to what slime can tell us about urban planning, Where the Animals Go will prove that ecology and zoology truly are tech fields. 192 pages.
