The good friends, and mentors, of the Automated Remote Biodiversity Monitoring Network (ARBIMON) got a lot of press this week after a new publication in PeerJ. They have developed a system that researchers can train to detect species calls automatically. More importantly, they tested their system with data from tropical forests, which present a particular challenge due to the high biodiversity.
Some of the media outlets that covered their research:
- Science Friday – Ira Flatow interviewed Mitch Aide and played some sample sounds from the rainforest in Costa Rica
- Popular Mechanics
- Spiegel (german)
