1 November 2018 A comparison of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and manned helicopters for monitoring macropod populations
Abstract

Context. Developments in the use of remote aircraft, or unmanned aerial systems (UAS), for ecological study have been rapid. Helicopter surveys have proven to be a reliable, repeatable method for broad-scale monitoring of harvested kangaroo populations in Australia’s rangelands, but the recent availability of long-range UAS may offer improvements in detectability and cost efficiency.
