Introduction to
Bioacoustics of

The course will provide complete and up-to-date information on the principles and applications of bioacoustics in chiropterans. In addition, it will include sessions for detecting, recording and analyzing echolocation calls.

Its design will allow you to work hand in hand with instructors, making it ideal for beginning students and professionals. Finally, a validation certificate will be awarded, a CD with free software for ultrasound analysis and the acoustic library identified at the species level generated from the practical sessions.

You will be able to identify the differences between the echolocation calls of bats that make up an acoustic community.

You will know the potential of ultrasound detectors as an efficient complement and in some cases substitute for mist networks in monitoring bats.

Through practical sessions, you will master the handling of active (Pettersson D240x and M500-384) and passive (Song Meter SM3BAT) ultrasound detectors.

Our instructors will help you to know the current panorama of the bioacoustics of bats in the country and at the end of the course you will be able to apply what you have learned in multiple projects.
