Start of a new project in the Haut-Jura (France) with the Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Jura and the Université Jean Monnet: monitoring of orthoptera communities to assess acoustic diversity of open areas (gentian meadows) within closed areas (spruce forest).
This publication, led by Elie Grinfeder, PhD student at the Ecole normale Supérieure and at EAR, reviews the concept of soundscape and, through a functional and source-filter approach, suggests the use of three soundscape categories: the distal soundscape (the spatial and temporal distribution of sounds in a pre-specified area, in relationto sound propagation effects), the …
We have just started a new project in the French Pyrenees in the Nature Reserve Py. We will monitor orthoptera communities over years to estimate the success of a restoration program in mountain open fields. Check out the project here.
