Comprehensive wildlife surveys are essential for documenting and managing biodiversity and researchers now listen as well as look.
Since 2012, Dr. Karen Rowe and her students at Museums Victoria have been conducting research in the field of bioacoustics and in 2015, began Listening for Nature.
The Listening for Nature research programme uses digital acoustic technology and bioacoustic approaches to document species presences and evaluate their use of habitats over time and geographic space.
