Ecoacoustics Congress 2016
Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan June 6-8, 2016
Presented by International Society of Ecoacoustics (ISE)
MSAE Co-chair, Eric Leonardson presents “Eco-sensing and the Soundscape,” on the pedagogy of sound and landscape the relationship between creative artists and scientists seems to have changed from an informative, yet sometimes awkward “dance,” over to what evidently requires urgent intervention for future survival on our planet.
What is Ecoacoustics?
Ecoacoustics is an interdisciplinary science that investigates natural and anthropogenic sounds and their relationship with the environment over a wide range of study scales, both spatial and temporal, including populations and communities. Ecoacoustics operates in all types of terrestrial and aquatic (freshwater and marine) ecosystems extending the scope of acoustics and bioacoustics.
Ecoacoustics recognizes that sounds can be both the subject and tools of ecological research. As the subject, sounds are investigated in order to understand their evolution, functions and properties under environmental pressures. As tools, sounds are used to study and monitor animal diversity, abundance, behavior, dynamics and distribution, and their relationship with ecosystems and the environment.
