Call for Contributed Papers:

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://acousticalsoc...ll-2014-meeting.

Many thanks,

Tina Yack and Danielle Harris
