GR:  What a load. The field of ecology isn’t “entering the era of Big Data,” it’s entering he era of big extinction.  The technology and techniques this article describes are great except that we are entering a period of decline where the causes of decline, not the details of individual species condition and behavior should be the focus.  All the fine young remote sensors need to shift to lobbying and protesting big oil and calling for human population decline.
