Abstract:

Bio-logging originated in the marine polar realm, which explains why marine mammals remain today the main biological models in bio-logging studies. We anticipate seeing state-of-the-art technologies, including acoustic tagging, 3-D trajectories reconstruction and environment monitoring devices e.g. dissolved oxygen and chlorophyll a concentration recorders attached to elephant seals were recently presented in a bio-logging workshop in Strasbourg in March 2013 at BLS5. The term bio-logging is interpreted broadly, encompassing not only logger-based technologies but also cutting-edge telemetry applications, as well as innovative systems using passive tags. The scientific scope of BLS5 is similarly broad.
