About the author (2000)

Robert Kenward started radio-tracking wildlife in 1974, monitoring released goshawks as a part of a thesis study at Oxford University. After learning to build radio-tags for projects in Sweden, he became a government biologist, working mainly on raptors and squirrels. More than 50 of his publications involve radio-tagging, including the Ranges suite of analysis software.
