Bioacoustical research on Aquatic Warbler Acrocephalus paludicola

The main research themes of Ph.D. project are geographical song variation of Aquatic Warbler as well as the relationships between population ecology and song complexity and diversity. In particular, the significance of relationship between song diversity and species population viability is being studied. As the project outcome, the song-based population viability indicator will be developed. Research methods will include cost-effective Aquatic Warbler monitoring based mostly on song recording and analysing. Therefore it is essential for the project to collect recordings from different locations across the European species range. Methods applied in this project (birds are recorded from a distance) have no negative effect on subjects.
