SATELLITE TELEMETRY.   The movements of birds have been investigated for the past 100 years mainly by ringing. In recent times satellite telemetry has provided us with a new device which makes possible the permanent and worldwide automatic location of birds over an extended period of time.

In view of the rapid development of this technique, a Yahoo Group for ‘Satellite Telemetry in Ornithology’ has been created for discussion and to help disseminate information on this technique and its results among researchers and other interested individuals to overcome the problem of the long time-lapse involved in the publication of articles in scientific journals.
