Special issue 3(2) of the journal «Nature Conservation Research» has been released. This is devoted to the use of camera traps for biodiversity studies. Currently, camera traps are globally used in ecological investigations, studies of nature assessment, research on animal activity and behaviour, environmental monitoring, estimate of biodiversity state. This emphasises the relevance of data presented in this special volume. This volume contains articles from different natural zones and about different animal groups. It includes an overview of data on the studies of biodiversity and selected animal species in South America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

The volume contains articles devoted to the use of camera traps to study the biology and ecology of selected animals (Gyps fulvus, Meles meles, Ursus arctos), estimate of biodiversity, abundance of selected groups of animals, human-wildlife conflict (Loxodonta cyclotis) in Central Africa, methodic approaches of camera trap usage in biodiversity estimation. The use of camera traps in Protected Areas of different countries is an important tool for remote sensing studies of biodiversity, biology and ecology of species.

The Editorial Board of the journal «Nature Conservation Research» especially likes to thank Sergey S. Ogurtsov (Central Forest State Nature Biosphere Reserve, Russia) and Emanuel H. Martin (College of African Wildlife Management, Tanzania), scientific guest editors of this special volume.
