As part of the Australian Acoustic Observatory, ABEL lab members are working with a collaborative team from several Universities and partner organisations to ask a range of questions concerning biodiversity, species movement patterns and how these change due to factors such as annual variation in climatic conditions. This ambitious project is only possible thanks to a LIEF grant provided by the Australian Research Council.
The project will consist of approximately 400 recorders collecting data at 100 different sites around the country, 24/7. That is a lot of data, but also a large opportunity if you are interested in big data, landscape level questions and bioacoustics. If that is you, contact Paul to see how you can become involved.
