Advancing Movement Ecology Through Freshwater Fish Tracking

Lennox et al. © Lennox et al. 'A role for lakes in revealing the nature of animal movement using high dimensional telemetry systems'. 2021One of the key tasks of ecology is to understand the use of space and time by animals. Recent advances in the development of automatic telemetry systems have allowed huge progress in the understanding of fish movement ecology, and biotelemetry is increasingly used in freshwater realm to study fish ecology, distribution and behaviour, providing unprecedented data with a very high spatiotemporal resolution. The special feature will feature studies addressing a range of research questions related to the movement ecology of freshwater fish, including studies of fish movement strategies, special behavioural patterns, social and interspecific interactions, species habitat preferences, niche overlap, migration patterns, temporal changes and site specificity.
