Motion-Activated Cameras Capture Biodiversity
Motion-activated cameras at Stanford University's Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve allow researchers to observe animals like never before. The solar-powered cameras automatically record video or photographs when a creature is in the vicinity and night vision means the scientists never miss a moment. Videos and photos are instantaneously uploaded, thanks to a new wireless network infrastructure that covers almost the entire preserve ? 1,200 acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains. New footage of skunks, possums, raccoons, mountain lions, deer, jackrabbits, hummingbirds, bobcats, and many others sheds light on the biodiversity in the preserve.
