    It looks like you are using Telonics collars on the agoutis. Is this correct? If so, what model? Have you tried any other maunfacturers collars?
    Thanks.

    1. agoutienterprise Says:

      Hi Greg, we used a few telonics but have since used mostly ATS. Both worked well, but the ATS design is slightly less bulky.


  2. Hi,
    I´m interested in deVos´s thesis. How I can get it?
    Thanks very much


  3. Hi, I’m very interested about this thesis: Suselbeek, L. 2009. Mammal density estimation from camera trapping data using Gas models; a test with the paca (Agouti paca). University of Groningen, University of Groningen.

    Please, how i can get a electronic copy?

    Thanks

      Hi Paulo,
      We are working this into a paper, almost ready to submit it, we’ll share it here on the blog when it is published.


  4. Hi,

    I´m interested in deVos´s thesis. Seed selection by granivorous rodents in a Neotropical moist forest. How I can get a electronic file?

    Thanks very much,
