This paper provides outlines of presentations made during a special session devoted to new technology for moose management at the 4th International Moose Symposium and 33rd North American Moose Conference and Workshop, Fairbanks, Alaska, May 17-23, 1997. The intent of this session was to provide an overview of emergent technology that may benefit moose management and to suggest future directions for research. Advancements in the use of Global Positioning System technology for tracking moose and other wildlife were outlined. The performance of these new systems under both controlled and field situations were discussed. Recent progress in the application of ultrasonography to the assessment of moose nutritional and reproductive condition was presented. Prospects for the application of new genetic techniques, particularly molecular genetic markers, to the understanding and management of most populations were considered. A new spatially based decision support tool for landscape level resource management was outlined and demonstrated. This special session highlighted the wide variety of new technologies that may have significant impacts on moose management in the near future and into the 21st century.
