Advanced Bat Acoustics: A Master Class

Advanced Bat Acoustics: A Master Class

January 21-23, 2022

This online Expert Series workshop will guide participants in improving their acoustic bat data vetting skills with a focus on the SonoBat platform. We will concentrate on methods to differentiate call and sequence characteristics that support confident species identification, and those that indicate when not to assign a species identification. The format consists of lectures and hands-on data workshopping via Zoom.

Lecture topics include: recognizing species-discriminating characteristics, identifying situations that lead to ambiguity, interpreting vital behavioral clues from sequences, reviewing special features such as social vocalizations, and implementing techniques for intelligent processing of large data sets. Participants will train these skills during “data jamming” sessions using their own and shared data.  

Audience: We gear this workshop toward the professional wildlife biologist with bat acoustic analysis experience (or those having taken a previous TWS or other bat acoustic workshop).
