Acoustic sensing: Roles and applications in monitoring avian biodiversity

Wimmer, Jason D. (2015) Acoustic sensing: Roles and applications in monitoring avian biodiversity. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examined the use of acoustic sensors for monitoring avian biodiversity. Acoustic sensors have the potential to significantly increase the spatial and temporal scale of ecological observations, however acoustic recordings of the environment can be opaque and complex. This thesis developed methods for analysing large volumes of acoustic data to maximise the detection of bird species, and compared the results of acoustic sensor biodiversity surveys with traditional bird survey techniques.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
