Description: We held a workshop related to the use of emerging technology to understand the ecology of grouse on 03 September 2015 from 08:00 to 17:30 at the Reykjavik Family Park and Zoo, Reykjavik, Iceland as part of the 13th International Grouse Symposium. Our overall objective was to translate technological advances in remote sensing, rapid biochemical assays, and robotics to resource managers for improved understanding, monitoring, and management of wildlife habitat and behavior in a changing climate. The workshop included seminars and hands-on demonstrations of equipment used to collect, analyze, interpret, and share data related to monitoring and predicting how grouse interact with their environment. Professors Jennifer S. Forbey (Boise State University), Gail Patricelli (University of California, Davis), and Donna Delparte (Idaho State University) chaired the workshop, which was funded by a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation. Sessions in the workshop were led by a team of faculty, students, and researchers who developed and routinely use the technology to conduct research at the interface of basic research and wildlife management. Through Grouse News, we hope to distribute the information related to several types of emerging technology to the wider community and grouse researchers specifically. For each technology type, we offer a list of equipment used, an overview of the technology, and examples of how the technology is used in different systems. We encourage researchers and wildlife managers to contact the users of the technologies listed here if they have additional questions.

Keywords: grouse, ecology, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), conservation, habitat composition, climate change
