NIOZ software opens new avenue for animal migration research
This week, a NIOZ-made software program for the R statistical environment was introduced. ‘FLightR’ enables refined and statistically validated analyses of animal movement data acquired with solar data loggers. The possibilities of the programme are…

From Canadian breeding grounds to Wadden Sea
On Friday morning, 'Paula', a red knot mounted with a very small satellite transmitter, landed on de Boschplaat on the island of Terschelling, The Netherlands. She did so after leaving the most northerly breeding grounds on Earth in a non-stop flight…
