  • Video: Soundscape ecology
    Soundscape ecology is a growing field of research that uses sound to track how ecosystems change over time. Bryan Pijanowski and Matt Harris work with a team of researchers to collect hours of sound at locations from the Alaskan tundra to a rainforest in Borneo. By analyzing the recordings they can reveal changes in each ecosystem that we might not otherwise be able to see.
