Bioacoustic methods are becoming increasingly recognised as a valuable
approach for ecological surveying. There has been a significant increase in
the use of bioacoustics to study marine mammals. Bioacoustics are
particularly useful for developing long-term, permanent datasets that can
be independently reviewed, particularly for rare species with low
detectability, or when working in difficult environments. Bioacoustics can
be used to effectively replace some current techniques whilst increasing
the quality of the data collected or can be used in unison to complement
them.

This course will introduce and explain the different applications for
bioacoustics to answer ecological questions. Starting with a detailed
overview of the correct and most efficient methods of data collecting in
the field, this course will then go on to show delegates cutting edge
methods for analysing and interpreting different types of bioacoustic data.

By the end of this 5-day practical course, attendees will have the capacity
to set up and deploy recording devices, download acoustic data, how to
analyse this data and report the results.

detectability, or when working in difficult environments.

The course will provide a practical introduction to bioacoustics methods,
with a mix of lectures and practical workshops, and some optional
fieldwork. It will start with a basic introduction to sound and recording
theory, before developing hands-on skills in setting-up and deploying a
range of acoustic and ultrasonic audio recorders. Workshops will then cover
the download and analysis of audio data, mainly using Kaleidoscope Pro and
Audacity software. The processed audio data will then be analysed and
presented using R, the free software environment for statistical computing
and graphics (http://www.r-project.org/).

Example data sets will mostly cover applications for bat and bird surveys,
as well as the use of Acoustic Indices as biodiversity metrics. If you are
working in different areas of ecology using bioacoustics please feel free
to contact oliverhooker at prstatistics.com so we can advise if the learning
outcomes are transferable to your field of research.
