Recordings of the sounds in tropical forests could unlock secrets about biodiversity and aid conservation efforts around the world, according to a perspective paper published in Science.

Zuzana Burivalova, a postdoctoral research fellow in Professor David Wilcove’s lab, has been undertaking cutting-edge research on this topic. She co-authored the paper with Edward Game (The Nature Conservancy and University of Queensland) and Rhett Butler (environmental news outlet Mongabay).
