ADV - Bioacoustics for Bats: How Sound Informs Conservation

Bioacoustics for Bats: How Sound Informs Conservation website

via Zoom, MN none

Enter into the nocturnal soundscape with bats! These cryptic mammals rely on ultrasonic sound for navigation, foraging, and social communication. Bat calls that are well out of human hearing range are now able to be recorded using acoustic detectors, allowing biologists a glimpse into the secretive world of bats. Bioacoustics sheds light on important information about bat species presence or absence, habitat preferences, phenology, population trends, and much more. Importantly, the tool is now an essential component for monitoring declining bat populations. Join us to learn about the fascinating world of bat acoustics and find out how you can eavesdrop on bats in your area!

Speaker: Melissa Boman, Mammal Specialist, Minnesota Biological Survey
