Eclipse Seminar Series: Exploring Animal Biodiversity Through Sound

Exploring Animal Biodiversity Through Sound
10-10:45am @ Davis Center Grand Maple Ballroom

Sound enables numerous animals to communicate, even when visual contact is not possible. Across amphibians, insects, birds, and mammals, sound plays a crucial role in various aspects of their lives, including species and individual identification, mate selection, warning of potential threats, and locating prey. In this talk, Assistant Professor Laura J May-Collado from the Department of Biology will delve into how innovative remote acoustic technology enables their lab to investigate the rich tapestry of natural sounds, facilitating the study of entire ecological communities. Additionally, they will explore how animals respond to celestial events like eclipses.
