Dear all,
The deadline for abstract submission to Society for Tropical Ecology meeting has been extended to January 12, 2018.
We received already a nice list of interesting papers so do not hesitate to join!
Best regards,


Dear bioacousticians,

The Society for Tropical Ecology organises its annual meeting in 2018 in Paris, March 26-29:

There will be a session dedicated to Audio and video monitoring you might find interest in (see the Abstract pasted below) .

Please do not hesitate to forward the information or to join us in Paris next spring!

Very best regards,


Audio and video monitoring of tropical animal diversity: new insights and new challenges

Jérôme Sueur, Alice C. Hughes, Patrick A. Jansen

Monitoring animal diversity is a key challenge of tropical ecology, as getting reliable information on
species ecology in a standardised manner across space and time is challenging. Furthermore the
rarity of some species and challenging landscapes and ecosystems can make direct observations and
captures difficult. Yet understanding species distributions, their populations and their movements and
the communities or landscape they belong to is essential information to not only understand their
ecology bit also to ensure they are adequately protected into the future.
However, recent noninvasive techniques based on audio and video autonomous sensors open the
possibility to sample tropical environments over large areas and long time periods in a consistent and
reliable manner. Such digital data acquired remotely and automatically returns valuable information on
animal behaviour, animal distribution, animal community composition, and even landscape structure.
In this session, we will report the most recent finding in terms of audio and video monitoring and
discuss about the possible challenges in terms of data collection, sampling design, supervised and
unsupervised automatic identification of species, and ecological indices. We will also show that these
data can be used as an attractive media to raise public awareness about tropical diversity and
conservation. We will aim to conclude the session with a presentation of the integration of these
different types of techniques to obtain a holistic understanding of the potential of these technologies.
