Calling in the dark: acoustic monitoring of wildlife

About the event
Stuart is a Senior Research Ecologist at the BTO, where he is mainly involved in survey design and analyses of data from large 'Citizen Science' surveys. Whilst the core of his work has been on birds, he has a personal interest in bats and acoustic monitoring, and in particular how technology can deliver new opportunities for conservation.
In 2013 set up the Norfolk Bat Survey (www.batsurvey.org), a novel citizen science approach for enabling unprecedented large-scale bat recording using static acoustic detectors, an approach which he has since been extended to other parts of the UK and overseas.
