Description

¬†Identity is vital to any scientific research but it is not always easy to establish, especially with groups of species that look very similar, or those with secretive lifestyles. A number of fascinating techniques are used to establish species’ identities, including recording sounds, monitoring tree damage, DNA analysis, and carbon dating fossil finds. Case studies include: woodpeckers, fur analysis, and identifying bats in flight.
