Abstract

A correlation between soundscapes and landscapes has been proposed, but there are few studies that have attempted to test this, especially in agricultural systems. The use of passive acoustic monitoring has the potential to scale up biodiversity monitoring across landscapes and potentially derive the necessary information to confirm patterns and processes driven by vegetation dynamics. In order to accomplish this task efficiently, rich data available through acoustic monitoring can be abstracted to a meaningful index and then used to select recordings most likely to contain songs and calls of farmland birds.
