Wireless sensor networks provide the facility for collecting diverse types of data at frequent intervals, even multiple times per second and over large areas. WSNs allowing ecologists and field biologists to engage in intensive, expansive sampling and collect new types of data without any problem. Wireless sensor networks have extending current capabilities and will allow researchers to conduct studies that are not feasible now. Typically, sensors have limited energy (e.g., an on-board battery) and are subject to the elements in the terrain.
