Recent Applications of Radar to Entomology
Abstract:This paper describes recent applications of vertical-looking radar to monitor migratory insect movements at high altitude, and of harmonic radar to record the flight paths of low-flying insects. Examples are given of how these radars have revealed novel information about the flight of bees, butterflies, moths and carabid beetles. The paper also briefly mentions some technical innovations designed to improve the performance of these radars.
