What does an invaded ecosystem sound like? And how does that change in soundscape impact native flora and fauna? Invasive species are one of the five factors reshaping the biosphere, threatening native biodiversity, ecosystem services on which society depends, and human health. There is an emerging interest in ecology about the changes to the soundscape of invaded habitats and the impacts this has for native species ability to adapt and persist. This ICAT Major SEAD grant is a multidisciplinary collaboration to collect, analyze, and visualize novel audio outcomes of invasion in both the Arizona high desert, and right here in Appalachia. Join the team as they present an immersive, multisensory experience showcasing audio and visual changes to invaded landscapes—providing novel data on how these ecosystems are being impacted. 

Speaker:    David Franusich and Jacob Barney
