2nd International Symposium on Bat Echolocation Research: Tools, Techniques, and Analysis
March 25 - April 1
2nd International Symposium on Bat Echolocation Research: Tools, Techniques, and Analysis • Tucson, AZ • March 25-April 1, 2017
This must-attend event is a follow-up to the Bat Echolocation Research Symposium held in 2002 and will highlight important advances in the tools, techniques, and analysis for bat echolocation research and monitoring. The Symposium will feature keynote speakers, plenary sessions, poster presentations, break-out working group sessions, and opportunities to learn more about the new equipment and software to record echolocation calls of bats in the field. Researchers from North America and around the world will share their findings about significant advances in the study of echolocation and acoustic monitoring studies during a schedule of 5-full days of presentations and related evening programs right on the Symposium property.
Over 20-species of bats can be found in Tucson, many of which will be migrating back to the area at this time, including nectar-feeding bats that visit hummingbird feeders. Exhibitors will have opportunities to demonstrate their latest equipment for active, passive, and mobile transect echolocation recording and monitoring in addition to software advances for the analysis and identification of recordings. Conference registrants may participate by sharing their research during oral presentations or poster sessions, join in working group activities to contribute to comprehensive echolocation survey guidelines handbook, and receive hands-on experience with bat detectors, analysis software, and monitoring techniques during evening practicums.
