The article discusses key issues concerning the history of microminiaturization. It also includes information on the key role of microminiaturization in the integration of ecology, the study of animals in relation to their natural environment, with radio telemetry, the wireless transmission of electrical impulses that gauge a distant object's various characteristics.
