More information about the project
Led by Holger Klinck and Laurel Symes of Cornell University’s Bioacoustics Research Program, a team of researchers islooking to AI-powered acoustic monitoring of insects as a way of better understanding the dynamics of rainforest habitats. The team is focusing first on neotropical rainforest katydids, a diverse groupthat occupies a central position in tropical food webs. How the wide variety of katydids interacts with the rest of the forest species, both plants and animals, can provide lots of information about the overall ecosystem. Klinck aims to scale beyond insects to other species, including birds, monkeys, and other vocal animals, to help advance conservation of tropical rainforests.
