To truly understand trends in insect populations, we are going to need more data.

Cameras and automation can massively accelerate collection of biological data. But how do we build an automated monitoring system for nocturnal insects? And how do we make the automated monitoring of moths inclusive, accessible, and scientifically robust?

Join us and discover the convergent evolution of four systems: the Mothitor, AutoMoth, Mothbox and AMI, in a quadruple-webinar followed by a guided discussion.

Mariana Abarca - Smith College: The Mothitor: Automated moth monitoring by undergraduate students

Jacob Idec - University of Florida: Fast, cheap and in control: The AutoMoth community science toolkit for automated nocturnal insect monitoring

Andrew Quitmeyer - Digital Naturalism Laboratories: Mothbox: A low cost, compact automated moth trap

Jenna Lawson - UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology: A brief introduction to AMI

Whether you're a curious beginner or a seasoned enthusiast, this event is for you! Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to connect with fellow moth lovers and expand your knowledge.


This webinar is a joint event between the Global Innovation Network Programme on Automated Monitoring of Insects (funded by the Danish Ministry of Education and Science) and the International Research Coordination Network on Insect Decline (funded by the US National Science Foundation).
