Conservational and ecological challenges as well as wildlife documentation increasingly demand extensive computing support in the field. One way of providing this support is by monitoring animal populations by application of object recognition and pattern matching techniques directly in natural environments.

This talk presents work on visual animal biometrics applied to often engangered species. It explains the formation and properties of animal coat patterns and their exploitation for automated recognition (on species and individual level) in the field.

A special focus will be on issues arising when operating biometric computer vision systems in natural environments; including controlling their robustness and scalability.
