ZLI Integrative Ecology Kit – Comparative Research
Natural light is an integral part of organic life. ZLI was founded on the idea that light in a zoo or aquarium should be as similar to natural conditions as possible. Although there are many factors that need to be considered, including light shape and distribution, natural light frequencies and intensity across the spectra should match indigenous conditions as far as possible, night and day.
This preconfigured dual spectrometer system includes a BLUE-Wave-UVN spectrometer (250-1100nm) and a DWARF-Star NIR spectrometer (900-1700nm) to account for a broader range of EM radiation applicable to animal and wildlife management. Measurements in the field can be automated to take snapshots over time, and then compared to similar measurements taken in-house.
