Acoustical Society of America Fall 2014 Meeting: Indianapolis, 27-31 Oct. 2014

 

Special Animal Bioacoustics Session: The Use of Passive Acoustics for

Estimation of Animal Population Density

 

We are hosting a special session at the next Acoustical Society of America

conference in Indianapolis (27-31 Oct, 2014). The session will be focused

on the techniques used for acoustic-based population density estimation.

Currently, the most widely used methods for obtaining density estimates

involve visual sightings; however, for elusive species and in remote areas,

passive acoustic monitoring offers a cost-effective alternative. We hope to

have a range of talks focusing on both current and potential applications to

terrestrial and marine species. Therefore, we encourage abstract

submissions from researchers who may be monitoring population sizes using

acoustics, or would like to explore the potential of doing so. The abstract

submission deadline is June 23rd, 2014 and details can be found at

http://acousticalsociety.org/content/fall-2014-meeting.

 

Many thanks,

 

Tina Yack and Danielle Harris
