Abstract : Two report summarizes the activity of a 3-year telemetry study of behavior and physiology correlates in large free roaming animals in East Africa. It describes techniques developed for long range animals tracking and transmission of physiological data by radio. Animals studied include the lion, zebra, buffalo and elephant. Data is reviewed and discussed, supporting the thesis that telemetry is an effective and practical method of studying animal communities in ecological subsystems. This approach offers the promise of new discoveries and increased insights into adaptive social and physiological mechanisms in relation to environmental pressures. (Author)
