Hi Jeremy, 

With a quick search I've found the paper linked below. It looks like equipments such as Livox MID are sufficient for plot-level analyses, but not for individual trees. Also, it has performed worse in dense canopies and broadleaf forest, thus I believe we won't have a technology capable of doing what you aim for this amount of money (< $1000) in a few years from now.

I hope someone give us an alternative, though. :D

Hi Shani, great to hear you are enjoying the series!

We're happy to share slides if our speakers give permission, in this case however the speaker has elected not to because of some of the content in the slides.

Was there anything specific you had trouble viewing and wanted to look at in more detail?

No, just in general it's easier for me to absorb information when I can look at it at my own pace (like some things from the first lecture, trying to remember the different types of sensors and their strengths, etc). But no problem at all, I understand- I can always scroll through the video and also do other research online. Thanks for getting back to me!

Ok no problem! Let me know if you have trouble viewing one of the specific figures/diagrams clearly though and I can try reaching out to the speaker to see if they would be willing to provide a higher resolution version.

Hi all


I am a sound designer, field recordist and electroacoustic composer, and I currently find myself in an job working events for Google; this has allowed me to learn a load about ML, CNNs etc. This has reignited my interest in PAM and ecoacoustics in general; I graduated with an MSc in Sound Design from Edinburgh Napier in 2018 and am looking to pursue research-based career options in teh scientific application of sound.

Also my mother worked in pest research through the 80s and 90s and was a GIS and remote sensing specialist so the subject is somewhat in my DNA.
