Abstract

Agricultural landscape structure was shown to be significantly correlated with acoustic measures of songbird diversity in research conducted at several Iowa State University Research and Demonstration Farms (ISRFs) during the summer of 2018. These results demonstrate the efficacy of bioacoustic surveys in agricultural landscapes. However, the sample size was limited to only 12 study sites. During the summer of 2019, the total number of bioacoustic recorders were increased to 31 study sites, which were located on several ISRFs and on privately owned farms.
