Habitat monitoring applications use WSNs to gather data about environment and migration patterns of animals. This data is used by biologists to analyze the life and behavior of animals in different environments. The application involves designing of WSN nodes to tag the animals and running protocols to gather and exchange information to be collected at the base station. Given the limited resources i.e. energy and memory, there is a need for an energy efficient and memory efficient data extraction protocol. We take in to consideration previous work done in Zebra net and wild CENSE to formulate a generalized protocol which could be implemented as is. The protocol parameters are defined as symbols which are based on application parameters. My work involves identifying the gaps in the previous work done for habitat monitoring. Filling the gaps and coming up with a generalized protocol and finally providing formulation for the protocol in terms of application parameters.
