Long-term, landscape-scale monitoring of wildlife responses to human land use can be a challenge. UVM PhD student (and former TMCC bird intern!) Cathleen Balantic is using remote acoustic monitoring units to eavesdrop on sound-producing wildlife in a federally designated solar energy zone in the Sonoran Desert (CA). Learn about the opportunities offered by acoustic monitoring of wildlife and how these data can be used to build population models that inform land management.
