The Impact of Anthropogenic Noise on Animal Acoustic Communication
A Free Workshop Preceding the 4th International Symposium
The scientific program of the 4th International Symposium will be preceded on Monday, 17 July 2017, by a half-day workshop in which key questions related to The Impact of Anthropogenic Noise on Animal Acoustic Communication will be discussed. The specific goal of the event is to objectively identify problem areas related to the influence of anthropogenic noise in diverse ecosystems, as well as consideration of strategies to mitigate scientifically-validated, adverse consequences of exposure to man-made noise. The anticipated product of the workshop is a white paper that will address questions related to the magnitude and scope that anthropogenic noise threatens acoustic communication and the ultimate goal of the workshop is the development of a guide to enable noise mitigation strategies to promote and/or restore natural soundscapes.
