Sound Ecology of a Wind-energy Development in the Nebraska Sandhills
  • Presentation Type: Oral Presentation
  • Date: 4/8/2016
  • Abstract: Soundscape ecology is founded on understanding the collection of sounds that emanate from landscapes. The conceptual framework of soundscape ecology is based on the causes and consequences of biological (biophony), geophysical (geophony), and human-produced (anthrophony) sounds. Using spatially- and temporally-explicit recordings of sounds along a noise gradient in the Nebraska Sandhills the effects of human-produced sounds on grassland bird communities can be determined. This information can allow us to document how sound sources including wind turbines and roads create a noise footprint across a pristine grassland faced with future human development. In this talk, emphasis will be placed on the methodology of sound analysis and preliminary results assessing anthropogenic influences on grassland bird communities.
