Technische Hilfsmittel



Der Einsatz von technischen Hilfsmitteln ist in heutigen verhaltensbiologischen Studien allgegenwärtig. Einerseits kann ein PC, Laptop oder Tablet dazu genutzt werden, Verhaltensbeobachtungen zu registrieren. Andere technische Hilfsmittel sind Voraussetzung dafür, dass ein Verhalten überhaupt erfasst und einer Analyse zugänglich gemacht werden kann.
