Purdue HEMA lab pioneers field of Soundscape Ecology

Purdue HEMA lab pioneers field of Soundscape Ecology

Brian Pijanowski, Professor at Purdue University in Landscape Ecology, is pioneering the emerging field of Soundscape Ecology, and he's using Wildlife Acoustics SM2 Song Meters to do so. According to Pijanowski, sounds can oftentimes be the first indicators in a host of changes facing a habitat.

In the Field: Song Meters allow researchers to better sample bird species in the tropics

In the Field: Song Meters allow researchers to better sample bird species in the tropics

We are always pleased to hear that our products are making life easier for scientists. That’s what one group from Charles University in Prague found when they published a study comparing conventional bird sampling using our  Song Scape feature from our Song Scope feature. The research noted that the autonomous capability of the Song Meters was highly useful in studying birds in remote areas of the tropics.
