Abstract : Bio-logging originated in the marine (polar) realm, which explains why marine mammals remain today the main biological models in bio-logging studies. We anticipate seeing state-of-the-art technologies, including acoustic tagging, 3-D trajectories reconstruction and environment monitoring devices (e.g. dissolved oxygen and chlorophyll a concentration recorders attached to elephant seals were recently presented in a bio-logging workshop in Strasbourg in March 2013) at BLS5. The term 'bio-logging' is interpreted broadly, encompassing not only logger-based technologies but also cutting-edge telemetry applications, as well as innovative systems using passive tags. The scientific scope of BLS5 is similarly broad.
