Within bioacoustics, the Ambisonics technology that was invented in the 70s, allows to locate any sound source in a given three-dimensional space.
This rare name technology, therefore, allows research teams to go one step further in acoustic studies and, specifically, in the case that Olga Jordi will present to us. Here, it will facilitate the individual characterization and sound monitoring of male Capercaillies from the Pyrenes, a species with a negative population trend and listed as ‘endangered’. This acoustic monitoring allows new insights about Capercaillies’ dynamics with the aim to improve their conservation.
Olga has a degree in Biology, with a master’s degree in Terrestrial Ecology and Biodiversity. She is an expert in Ornithology and Ecology and has worked for a few years in different scientific projects (always oriented in the field of Ornithology and Ecology) around the world and in all types of environments. Her professional career has always been directed to issues of conservation and management of fauna and flora, as well as the recovery of species and natural spaces, always with ornithology, statistics and GIS as protagonists.
